And it's making me crazy. My husband wants to leave his job and move because he is unhappy. Well that may be what's best for him, but we have two kids and that doesn't even seem to factor in and when I try to talk to him he just doesn't seem to get it. He just tells me it would be better for the kids if he were home more, which I agree with, but part of the reason he isn't home more is he also volunteers with what's left of his free time. He's talking about moving and going to school in another state this Fall, we own a house which would never sell in time, and my daughter is due to start Pre K this Fall, which if we move she will most likely miss school the entire year. Plus she is just about to start speech therapy, which she desperately needs, and that will set her back and I will have to start the process all over again.
Now I don't want to come off as a selfish witch either, my husband works hard, works crazy hours, and I know he isn't happy. But when you're a Mom your kids come first and I don't understand why it isn't the same for him. That's not even addressing the fact that he thinks we can afford to do this and I don't agree. What do I do to keep him from making a selfish decision against my will, or keep him from hating me if he listens and doesn't do it?
