Our expert says:
Kids, especially at such an age, can indeed be draining at times ( and invigorating at others ). Its good that your husband is prepared to help, despite his own busy schedule --- don't fret that he needs to be asked --- he probably feels unsure of exactly what is needed, and thinking of what the kids needs isn't part of his regular routine, so it probably doesn't occur to him naturally. However, do discuss the situation with him, calmly ( NOT at a crisis point, but at some neutral time ) and ask for his suggestions about how things could be worked out a bit better. He probably has a heavy weekday schedule, and sees the weekends as HIS free time,, not perhaps realizing that for a busy mom there are no weekends and no free time, unless one arranges and schedules it.
