I really think men under estimate what we do sometimes, i too am a stay at home and recently had a c section, so my husband had to do more than he normally does and play “mum” for a few weeks while i recovered. He has always appreciated me, but at the end of this time he said he had to go back to work for a break and that he does not know how i do what i do………. made me feel good knowing that he doesn’t think i just sit around or not do enough. Can you try talking to him? Explaining how his comments make you feel? Sometimes men can be so dense :-) they don’t even realise the hurtfulness behind their comments……. keep your head up and if i were you either have a chat to him or go make a cuppa and put your feet up. Because if he thinks you don’t do much anyway, you might as well be comfortable :-)
