Law school or family?

My husband is a 1L at a top-ten school, and we have a 16-month-old daughter. I'm a former librarian staying at home for now, taking a couple of classes in the fall. Finals are next week, and he wants me to take care of our daughter full time or take her away altogether. Is this reasonable? Am I being selfish for asking him to help me out an hour a day?

Before school started, we had an equitable relationship, although sometimes I asked him to pitch in with housework when he didn't volunteer. Now, I feel like he doesn't think about what's going on in my life at all- it's all law school, all the time.
