That sucks, it's hard for me not to be on her team all the time because she does all the same smurf as me. Even though I'm friends with YOU I can totally see where she's coming from, you're like "Oh for the love of God, it's formula, mix in water and shake, wtf get over it." in your mind, but in her mind she's thinking "For smurfing real? I ask so smurfing little of this man in regards to his kids does he think I'm just smurfing chilling out doing nothing, I can just do it and he'll leave for his quiet office?! Smurf him!"
KWIM? Plus on top of that who KNOWS what happened while she was stewing for that, S. could have dropped something and D. could have gotten into something. I mean obviously she's wrong and she can get over it. But... that's women!
I guess I could've understood her more, if that's all I did.
The reality is that I work 7:30-7, cook dinner, and take care of the kids when I get home. We agreed that I would be the primary caregiver in the evening and on weekends, but it wasn't supposed to be her spending the whole night on the laptop. She even admitted that things could be done sooner around here if she didn't "shut off" when I get home.

You know that saying "you get treated the way you allow people to treat you" ? That's what this is IMO you really set her standard too high, I believe that SAHMs are working as hard as a working parent during the day but unfortunately the only break they get is HELP when their spouse gets home, not the night off. But sometimes with women it's easier to go along with it than fight it
