Why can't men understand?

why can't men understand that most women, especially working moms, are really busy and can't do anything they just want you to do. As for me, i have a loving husband and an outrageously naughty kid and i work 8 hours a day. so when i come home i still have to prepare dinner, play with my kid, and get him ready for bed. But there are times that my husband can't understand that i'm so dead tired and can't stay late at night.?

LOL My guy will say the same thing about me sometimes, because of his work schedule, and the fact that I'm unemployed. Once the two of us really took a look at eachother and at the things that stress us vs. the things that relax us, and made sure to make time for eachother, even when we're long distance, things worked out FANTASTIC!!! You and hubby need to have a good long talk, and make sure you listen to eachother.

You're welcome, and thanks for the "best response." Next time he snaps at you, lay down the law with him!!!! Tell him, assertively, that you are NOT going to take that crap. Also, you'd never give him that kind of crap either. You can control yourself...can he? I had to get "tough" with my Sweetheart, but I never once lost my temper. He did a few times, but I didn't. When I didn't, he realized that he couldn't argue, because I hadn't done anything to provoke him. Please let me know how it goes. Have a great one.

does your husband work also? if you have to shoulder so much, I would hope that your husband has his own share of daily headaches too. at the moment, I'm not working and a lot of times my girlfriends feels this sense of immunity from any responsibility once she comes home from work. i try to do everything around the house and take care of our 6 month old daughter, but i need to at least have one feeding and maybe or changing or two taken off my hands each evening for my sanity's sake.

I think husband and wife must have " Tolak Ansur" What they called it? i forgotlah. Husband must help his wife in housewife work such as clean the house, laundry and prepare the children.

I am sorry that your husband doesn't always understand. it is good to know that he wants to spend time with you, but he must understand that you work and also have to do things around the house that are important. You should talk to him and explain how hard you work and how much else you have on your plate. I know that he will understand!^_^
