Even with limited time home, there is always a way to have one-on-one with each of the kids and your partner. It was hard when both of us were working full time to make time for each other and the kids, but sometimes just the simplest things make a big difference. Like one thing we did was all of us would go to the grocery store together and my BF and I would split the list in half, each of us get a cart, and we would each take one of the kids with us that way each of them had some alone time with one of us. Then in the next store, we would switch. It doesn't have to be some huge activity, but if you really want to have one-on-one with your kids, you can make it happen.

Something needs to change or you're going to explode. Lay down the law with your DH and let him know that he either needs to get on board or you're not going to take it anymore. The resentment you have toward him is going to affect your parenting with all the kids, yours and his. It's already affecting how you parent your SD.
