I have a four year old, a three year old, and my boyfriends 9 year old stay with us every weekend. I am a stay at home mom and i'm getting depressed about it. I feel shut off from the outside world, I feel trapped in my home. I feel like a bad person because having so many kids and not talking to adults makes me annoyed and overwhelmed. I have a boyfriend who is only home for about an hour and a half a day due to weird work schedule and feel completely alone with the kids like i live in a different world from every one else. If i mention anything like this to my boyfriend about it, he looks down on me as a woman, like i'm lacking in motherly traits. He feels like women are meant to stay at home and it should come naturally to them. i feel inferior because i am having a hard time with it. Does anyone else feel like this? please help!
