We have two new children in the home in less than 5 years. I am beginning to feel neglected or maybe even jealous. Dad spend all his time with the children and thinks about me after the children are in bed and I usually follow them to bed because I have to be up for work at 5am. Dad work what they call a Southern Swing (required to work 3rd, 2nd and 1st shift in that order every month). So, one could see the conflict with our schedules. I love him and want to spend time with him as much as possible, but it has been very hard. I feel like I carry the load of being mom, dad, caretaker and all that plus more and the little time Dad is there he spend it with the children. Do I have my priorities in the wrong place or am I just jealous of the children?
