I am a stay at home mother of a three yr old and a seven going on eight month old. My daughter is not his biological daughter and she was barely two when we met and two when we got married. I had a c-section with both my kids and bottle fed both. At night I was the one who got up with the kids and still do till this day. When my husband gets home from work he either saies he is tired and eats dinner, puts in a movie (we do not have tv)and laies on the couch or he eats dinner and goes out in the grauge. I am home with the kids no joke 24/7 7 days a week. I barely get to go out....ok I never hardly get to go out. I don't want to sound like a nag or be upset all the time, but it would be nice if he helped me out with dishes and launder and help get kids ready for bed and help put them to bed. I know he works 40 hrs a week and has to drive an hr and a half three times a week for school, but I consider that getting out of the house. Also he saies we cannot go out to eat because it is not in out budget but yet he can sped 60 dollars a month going out to eat for lunch when he is at school...I just do not know what to do anymore. Should I just not say anything and keep going on holding my feelings in and be a good wife and stay at home mother and do everything like I am doing now or should I say something. My mom and dad lives 6 hrs away and my in-laws litterally live right across the street, but I never get invited anywhere with my mother in law or my sister in law so I am pretty lonely as well because I still do not have friends.
HELP FEELING LOST AND DON"T KNOW WHAT TO DO!!
I love my kids and my husband I would not change anything, but I am not use to this stay at home mom thing at all. When you worked 40 hrs and went to school full time to feeling stripped of everything. ya. If I went back to work daycare for two is expensive and my husband already said that daycare is coming out of my paycheck, bills as well most likely whatever bills left over. I just do not know what to do or how to talk to my husband about this stuff. I tried and its like it goes in one ear and out the other.
