I have not been on the site since my first daughter has been born. But I feel I need friends, and support.
My husband took a new job which has a promising future and will give us financial stability.
It has now been 5 months, and we only see him a couple of days every month. I have a 3 and half year old daughter and a 1 and half year old daughter. And for the last week I have felt like running away.
All they do is fight, cry and have tantrums. They have always been very good. Venuscha-Lee my eldest talks to my husband every night before she goes to bed but Scarlet-Mae the baby is scared of the phone. Whenever he is home, he spends all his time with them.
I don't know how to handle them anymore. I feel that if I punish them I am wrong because it is hard without their father. But if I don't they think it is ok to do what they want. We live with my parents and I get a lot of support from them. But Venuscha-Lee only wants her granny and not me.
The girls also fight over who get something or do something first. It is so bad, that in the mornings we have to drive them to school in two different cars. In the evening my mom takes one child in her house and I take the other, just so that they can stop fighting, crying and screeming.
I work full day, get home late. My mom has to help out where I am not available. It is so hard we feel so tired emosionally at night.
I give up, and need help.
