To expect my partner to be involved with dd bedtime routine?

Tonight when I said that it was bedtime for our dd he announced that he was going to sit down and have his dinner while I put her to bed (dinner that I cooked and put aside for him earlier this eve). When I objected and said I wanted him to help, he said that he doesn't need to be involved and that he's been at work all day!!!!

I am a sahm and would just appreciate a hand with the end of day/bedtime routine. He said I am like a dictator for insisting he's involved!

After putting her down I then had to go to the shops to get some food essentials for tomorrow. I can't take her out with me as she has a viral/ear infection at present.

I don't think he's being very fair and just feel fed up.

DH doesn't like to bath DD so we compromise. I bath her and he gets her PJs on and does story and bottle. If someone is tired/sick/annoyed, the other person will take a shift.
