Right now I stay home alone with our son while my husband works and does other things. But I'm really kind of upset with him right now because he seems to think that because I'm a SAHM, it's a given that I stay with the baby while he goes out and does whatever. Like just now he said, "Just so you know, I have to step out for a bit. I won't be gone too long." And then a few minutes later he left. He didn't even say why or what he had to do. And I'm supposed to just be ok with it. I feel like I could never do something like that. He's never been alone with the baby before.
Anyway sometimes I get upset because I wish I had to freedom to just go out when I feel like it. I don't think he understands that it can be tiring and isolating to be alone with the baby all day. I really look forward to his days off so we can all spend time together and maybe go out, or so that I can have some time to myself. But then he does stuff like this. I've tried to talk to him about helping more (another issue is that when he gets home from work he just automatically goes and relaxes with his laptop when I want help with the baby), but it doesn't seem to get through. He's happy enough to do something if I specifically tell him what to do right that second, but it seems like the general assumption is that I'm here to take care of everything while he "helps" if I ask.
Just needed to get that out since he just left and I'm sitting here crying and feeling awful about all this.
