I feel the same way all the time, I live with my boyfriend and it seems like I only get to spend time with him for 3-5 hours a night when he gets off work, Unless it's the weekend.

I am a stay at home girlfriend/Mother figure to his two children ages 7 and 8

it's very stressful sometimes do to Baby momma drama do to there Mother that gets them every other weekend, but considering I am not there Mother "I'm more of a Mother then there true Mom sadly" and the fact that she loves to start drama and told the kids that me and there Daddy are not going to last...

I only have a few friends around here and only go to hangout when the kids are at there Mothers house.

In every relationship I have been in I've always worked and never had to take care of Children so this is still all new for me, And I never had a man who appreciated me and truly loved me.

But anyways, I 100% understand how you feel and what you mean, It's very hard as well because I always feel like I am not doing enough to help him out when he is at work "I don't know if you are feeling the same as well"

Krystal, look into MOMS Club. Do a google search to find their website, see if their is a chapter in your area. They are an organization that helps get SAHMs together, and is a great support for those with young children.

You might also want to see your doctor about PPD.

Big hugs to you.

Nice to meet you Krystal, my name is Heidi, I am twenty five and I have a five year old daughter. I am not a wife yet, buy my boyfriend works over full time and is hardly home it seems. My daughter just started kindergarten too and im finding it hard to stay at home, but as we only have one car right now, it's not like i can actually get out and do much. I have like one friend in the whole world, and she's in school and mostly working so I don't see her much, and i think my parents are getting tired of me calling them everyday just to talk. Recently I made my boyfriend take me out and buy a bunch of baking products, and I spend my day (after i clean, catch up on my college hw, take care of the pets and take a shower) looking for recipes to make with my daughter. The other day I tried to make donut holes, which failed miserably-but it was fun, and after my daughter got home we tried again to make an actual donut, they were good when they were warm, but after a few hours they weren't so good anymore, i'm still searching how to make em better. And two days ago I made a big batch of sugar cookie dough while she was at school and then perfected my drawing skills, because we d on't have cookie cutters, and after she got home we made sugar cookies and frosted them with some kind of homeade icing stuff... lol... anyways, . . it's an idea, and you could do it with your children too! Keeps me from going crazy for now, but i'm here if you wanna talk, i do get lonesome.
