That is simply unacceptable. Considering your workload, you need time to yourself. In order for you to get that time, he needs to relieve you from kid responsibilities.
I know you think he is a turd for skipping a meeting and having some beers and a nap, but I think he is setting a great example for you! Put yourself first sometimes. Take advantage of the time you can grab. Relax hard
in the time you get, lol.
The holidays are past, but maybe an idea for a birthday or Valentine's day (if you do gifts): my husband's Christmas gift to me was 4 passes to my favorite independent movie theater. That is the gift of 4 Saturday afternoons that I go see a movie alone
. That is the gift of him worrying about the kids while I take time for myself. And, since it was my Christmas gift from dh, I take those afternoons completely guilt-free. Maybe you could tell him you'd appreciate a gift like that?
