I have a 6 1/2 month old baby and a soon-to-be 4 year old. I have no parents or family members or friends that are able to help me out. I'm not interested in hiring a nanny until i've tried everything else.
I'm a stay at home mom - the dad works hard at his job and it's very physically & mentally straining. Basically i feel like i'm a single mom because he barely helps me with the kids ...which is okay but it's difficult to listen to him complain about the kids when he barely does a thing. And then he'll speak to someone on the phone & talk about our issues (some of which aren't even issues anymore, that's how out of touch he is with raising a baby) and I need some help prioritizing my time and discussing things with other moms instead of him. I'm tired of just winging it cuz it's not working. It'd be nice to hear from someone else if anyone else out there is in the same boat as me and if so, what does your daily routine look like? I need to change things soon or we might be splitting up. We have no time for each other. And no... telling him to do more to help me is NOT an option.
