Yanbu..... But what did DH say and do??

It's his son as well, yes? What's his problem?

Has any of the other stuff changed with regard to your DH? For example, is he ironing his own work uniform etc?

You are not his slave you know...

Of course that isn't unreasonable!

I would shout at him. He sounds a selfish fucker who needs a kick up the arse, frankly.

Yes, you need to shout. "Shape up or ship out" would be a start.

Thinking about it you need to write a list of jobs with his name at the top and one with your name at the top, then give his to him. Then he won't need telling what to do, he can check the list. If he complains about it then show him the second list with your name at the top so he can see you're doing the same amount.

I agree you need to really set out who is expected to do what in order to get a more equal partnership in parenting your son and looking after the house. I let resentment bubble away for years, making excuses for him (working more and earning more than me, eczema on his hands making nappy-changing difficult, etc. etc.) and it got me nowhere but divorce! Good luck...
