My husband works long hours at night to make it worse but whenever he is off work, he will cook supper and do the dishes and the next morning he lets me sleep in, which is hard to do with 3 little ones running around, but he will lock our bedroom door and let me sleep as long as I need to. He also will bring a meal home at least once a week so there will be no dirty dishes to do and we can just sit and have our family time. Every once in a while I feel like going shopping by myself and he will keep the kids so I can go get whatever it is I'm wanting to get. I don't know what I would do without that man.

Whenever I want after my husband comes home from work, sometimes I leave my son with him and go to visit someone, or do my shopping or just go for a walk. but my son is also pretty good about napping. So while my husband is at work, I give my self me time. I treat myself pretty well.

With my 3 month old pretty much attached to my boobs still, lol, its limited. He does try to give him bottles to extend the time away from me, but its a 50/50 shot. My hubby is sweet and will watch all 3 of our boys...3 months, 6 yrs and 7 yrs old, and let me shower, or take a bath. BUT the best thing he ever does for me is lets me sleep in every weekend, and when his schedule permits takes the older two to school. They don't have a bus to their charter school and we have to drive them 30 mins away to school. Hubby will get them in uniforms, breakfast, and drive them out there. The weekend thing is wonderful, b/c he usually puts in about 50- 60 hrs between his two jobs and still never complains and takes care of the older two till baby and I get up on Saturday AND Sunday. My hubby is the sweetest thing on earth...most of the time :)

My fiance will watch the boys after he gets home from work so I can workout - even though he's tired he lets me have 30 minutes. On those rare times that we have money, he'll watch them while I go out and shop. He also gets up on his days off and takes care of the boys to let me sleep in. A couple extra hours always makes me feel better.

My husband comes home with dinner once a week so that I don't have to fix it or do dishes. He also wakes up with my son in the morning so I can slee till 8 or choose to watch the news or read a book. My son is only 9 months so it is a little harder to take him places but every once in a GREAT while he takes him out of the house so I can do what I want, which normally means I clean or do laundry so that it gets done faster.

My husband will out of the blue, pile all the kids in the car and take them to the mall(a 1hr drive)to give me the house all to myself with peace and quiet...and comes home with each of them has picked me out a book, slippers,bubble bath. inexpensive but full of meaning gifts to say they love and appreciates me. Each gift is personal in thier own choosing,my fav, gift was froma gumball like machine, my16 yr old daughter gave me.she spent like 4 dollars to get two identical mood rings for her and I.
