My son is 6 months old and I stay at home and take care of him while my fiance usually works or plays call of duty in the back bedroom. After I got pregnant I pretty much had to change most things in my life like the friends I had in high school, but it's really hard for me to find close friends that I can relate to that have their first baby and are going through some things that I'm going through. Since I don't work I never get to socialize and hardly leave the house. I live taking care of my son but he can't make conversations with me just yet.:)

I was in a similar situation when I had my first child, I stayed at home and he worked and when he came home he didn't do much but play Xbox or sleep..... I got a part time job and grandparents watched the kids. I didn't require all the Xbox unwinding and sleeping that he did. I couldn't understand why he was allowed to get away with it. To make a long story short, I was 21 then I am 27 now and we got married and he has come a long way and matured a lot. When he gets off work he will pick up the kids on days I work, cook dinner, give them baths, maybe even fit in some yard work or small projects around the house, fold laundry..... If I didn't work part time I would have no excuse not to have anything done around the house but on my off days he still comes home and helps me finish up whatever it is that needs finishing up. We work as a team and we do projects together around the house like right now we are installing a brick patio and its something for us to do together instead of us doing our own things and not having anything to talk about. It takes time and the army in my case to make a man mature and realize that you are sacrificing your social life and professional like for the sake of the family and he should make sacrifices to and working isn't a sacrifice in my opinion it's just something a real man does for his family. My husband works 10 hours shifts and wakes up at 4:45 am and still comes home and does his duty as a father and husband. It took us a while to get to this point but I'm glad I stuck it out and we worked on us because it was totally worth it :)
