I'm a newly single stay at farm mom of three kids. I grew up on a cattle ranch and knew how to work hard. DH was a city boy, who left without a goodbye. The kids and I are doing everything by ourselves. My mom owns the cattle ranch up the road and we help each other out.
I'm learning how to slow down and know that it's gonna be okay if I let the laundry stay on the line a day and just go fishing. smile. I'm always tired.

I am a stay at home mom of two little boys, and my husband is a dairy farmer. I have struggled with the long hours, and raising my boys alone! I have started to be angry at his Uncle and Dad for never letting my husband come home early some nights to spend time with his family. I could really use some advice on how to cope with being a farmers wife!

Hey, looks like there aren't too many of us around!
It's difficult sometimes to be a farm mom - especially on a dairy farm! - and not have anyone to relate to. Even tho I live very close to my husband's relatives (and by close I mean sharing a driveway!) they were all "inside" moms and I'm more outdoorsy and I love helping around the farm. They have hardly any advice on getting things done around the farm w/ 2 little ones outside of "get a babysitter". Ugh!
