Is it normal to feel like a single mother? I don't remember this with my first child. Maybe this is just a rant or i judt need to know that its not just me. i have a wonderful husband but i just can't do it all instead of 2 children i feel i have three. My mom told me to think of this like being a 50's mom soing everything from the cooking to the cleaning and the raising of the child while my husband works. But i don't want to feel like this. i shouldn't have to clean up his dishes that are lying around the house or even putting them beside the sink just put them in the sink. We have a 2 month daughtert that has to take medication 5 times a day and a 2 year old that craves attention all the time. i haven't slept in 2 weeks since she finally came home from the hospital. My dr. recommeded that i find an outlet like a mothers group but the only thing local is for single mother ar teen moms. nothing for married moms. i don't have any local friends they all live an hour away so getting out isn't easy and between my daughter and my son i have to go dr.s appointments once to twice a week.
My husband does absolutley nothing around the house. when he is home he's not really home. he's completly engrossed into the tv or his books or the computer and when our son wants attention from him he throws down toys and walks away. so i have to try and feed my daughter and play with my son at the same time. Last week he spilled something sticky in the hal,l didn't clean it up then we ended up with a ant infestation when i mentioned the ant he told me he spilled his drink. So i said i guess i'll wash the floors and his response was while your doing that can you clean some of alecks outside toys too, they're bringing dirt into the house. I was fuming to say the least. but this is what i'm dealing with. when did they stop caring or helping? is it just plain harder when you have 2 kids i just don't remember it being this hard. Anybody else feel like this?
