User - posted on 01/29/2013 ( 2 moms have responded )




I work full time at night and I am a SAHM during the day. My husband works for an armored vehicle and startes work at 5:00 am. He takes my 21 month old son to Nanny and Pop Pop's house where I pick him up right after I get out of work at 7:00 am. My husband usually doesnt get home before 8:00 pm. I leave for work at 11:00pm. My husband and I both work 5 days a week. I sleep when my son takes naps (maybe 2-3 hours a day). I also do all the grocery shopping, laundry, and clean the house. I also cook almost every day of the week. I am so bogged down I just want somebody to talk to who does through something similar, sombody who can truly relate.

Tell your husband he is going to have to start supporting you and the child in proper manner and that you need to take a few years off from working. Tell him he is not getting any more sex until this occurs.

Wow! that's a hard schedule for all of you! It's hard to work opposite of your husband (mine and I did it for several years) and still take care of everyone and everything! Would it be possible for Nanny and PopPop to keep your son till 9 or 10am so that you would be able to get a few things done. We all know doing it alone is soooo much faster! Or you could go home and sleep a couple hours. Even if you only did this 2 of the 5 days you work, you would be amazed at how big a difference it will make! I hope that you are able to figure out something and that you and your family can find a happy balance! Hope you have a good day! :)
