It's so hard for me to spend time with him because he leaves a 4 in the morning and comes back at 7 at night. by then he is tired and hungry. But he tries to spend a little time with me and our son before he goes to sleep and do it all over again. It's weird because our son actually has become agusted to his schedule. And he's only 3 months. He knows when daddy's off and he gets really excited and restless. But when he works he is all momma's boy. Does anyone feel the same way??

My husband works for Patterson and is 7 and 7.. He's almost 5 hours away from home. It's super tough on us here at home. Our son is soon to be 13, and really misses his "dad time". I try and let them have as much time as possible together when he is home so as not to foster any resentment with our son against his dad. Hubby has been doing this for over 4 years now, so we have adjusted but it doesn't make it ANY easier!!

My husband works 7 on and 7 off. He stays at the rig for 7 days and home for 7 days. Our daughter is 2 and her dad has only been work with Patterson again for the last month. Things have been really tense with him when he gets back. Our daughter is very strong willed and it can get really tough on us all. I want so badly for things to go smoothly and without the tension. It just never seems to go that way. It is hard to adjust to our new routine.

i know how you feel, my hubby works 7 and 7 as well. but he works 4 hours away from home, and its very dificult raising two kids on my own and keeping the house up and yard work done, and vehicles maintained. but when he comes home for his days off it still doesnt seem like enough time, i cry myself to sleep sometimes, yet i still have to be strong for my girls. i have even had a couple of nightmares about someone breaking in our house while hes gone, so i guess you can say i know how u feel. but the time shared together as a family is priceless
