I work on average 50-70 hours a week and my wife stays home with my 2 girls. We constantly disagree on who gets a break and when. Need help!
i run a small building co. and she stays home with our 2 & 4 year olds. I leave at 6:30 am and don't stop till at least 7pm sometimes later. I do this so she can stay home and raise our kids. And takes care of everything else. She is amazing at it!! We both wanted this. The problem is we disagree on who gets a break. I know she works hard but I use my body to feed us and I am physically exhausted. For example this week I worked 75 hours and have had 4 days off in the past 1 1/2 months. But I have no choice. We have to survive. Today I am off (after doing 5 hours of paperwork )and she said that she had some errands to run. Our baby is napping and I asked if she would take the other one so I could watch some tv and relax for an hour or so.(my 4 year old is a handful). She said "When do I get a break?!!" I understand that she is with them all the time but I feel that she has no appreciation for how hard I work for our family. I also think that she has no idea what it takes to work physically in the heat/cold year round. I've tried to talk to her but she gets so mad that I want some time to put my feet up. Well I could say more but the baby is up. So any advice would help.
