So I work 12-14 hours days 6 days a week. I am out the door by 3am and sometimes don't get home until 3:30-6pm. My boyfriend works (sometimes) 3 days a week, if that. 5 hour work days max and his work day doesn't start till noon. When I get home dinner is never prepared, so I end up making dinner every night when he sits around and plays Call of Duty or NBA. We have 2 kids as well. On my one day off I want to sleep in. After all, I barely get any sleep any other day because he wants me to stay up with him till 11-11:30 every night when he knows I have to leave at 3am. Our kids wake up at 6:30 and on my day off he will wake me up and have me get up with the kids. And then, even while he sleeps in till sometimes 1-2 in the afternoon, he will still take naps during the day. When I bring up my lack of sleep he will brush it off and say things like "Yeah, I'm tired too. Its life." Or "You got 3 extra hours of sleep than normal so I don't know why you're complaining." Or "I wake up with the kids every morning. You can do it on your day off." Which, yes I understand that but I work so much more than he does and get a drastic amount of less sleep than him.

Is he raising the children then? Because I go to work for a break and I'm raising mine. Work is work being at home with your family is real work. Put your foot down tell him he has 2 choices start keeping house raising the kids and cooking the meals or go to work full time so you can do it. And stop whinging about lack of sleep he's probably up more than you think. Guess what no parent sleeps properly!!0
