Husband's work leaves me with a spoiled toddler and no sleep!

My husband is a truck driver and his days are never predictable. Some days he is home before 5 pm, other days he could be gone for two weeks. He spoils our daughter when he is home, then leaves me with the sassy, demanding, irritable two-year-old. I am a stay-at-home mom, first-time parent, and full-time college student. I often find myself going crazy from the number of chores that keep adding up. Any tips or tricks to get my toddler to remain calm when daddy is away or tips to make my 12 hours stretch a little further?

I hav 3 kids and are in the same position more or less, I dnt start collage full tiime until August! My daughter is 11 and so demanding and my 3&4 year old are hyper and more or less like twins' (11 month apart) but good kids,
I do all the house work and everything with the kids and when dad is home he is the best and I'm the moody mum 😆
You just hav to get on with it as hard as it is at times,
I say if I didn't have help from my mum I don't Know how I would cope lol
If u are full time at collage then I wouldn't call that a stay at home mum, but good luck kids always get easier X

Hey Stormy, I would ask the same question, how would you define her being spoiled when daddy is home and after he leaves?
