My husband works out of town and in the evenings he gets to go to friends, movies and just relax. Sometimes I get jealous of him because before I got married I was hardly ever home. I was always out and about doing stuff. I have 2 boys, 5 yrs old and 3 yrs old. My 5 yr old is in kindergarten 4 full days a week and my 3yr old is in playschool 4 times a week, so I'm starting to get time to myself, but the evenings are still tough. I started to volunteer at the school with the Parent Advisory Committee (like a PTA) and it's hard to find babysitters, while he gets to go willy nilly all over at night and not worry about anything.
Don't get me wrong I love my husband and kids and my husband works hard at his job, but there are days I wish I could just go to a movie or out for coffee with friends and not have to take the kids or worry about getting someone to look after them.
Does anyone else feel that way? Am I the only one?
