My husband thinks I should do all of the housework because I do not have a job: Advice?

So me and my husband been married for 13 years. We have five children. I stay home and do most of the housework and take care of the kids. But there are days where I don’t feel like doing much, especially at that time of the month. On the days where I don’t do anything, I am called lazy. “And what do you say you do here?” He believes I should do all the housework since he works outside of the home. He hardly ever helps with our five kids. I make dinner, I help with homework and after-school sports, and I put them to bed while he plays on his phone or the Xbox. And when I do ask him to help, he calls me lazy or gets in a fight with me. I hate this. How do I get him to stop? Is it been years, and he still doing it?

I would make him spend a week at home taking care of everything and see how he feels or I would start billing him for everything…if you were to work you would have to pay some to watch the kids and clean the house.
