I am a mom of 3. I have been marries 9 yrs. My husband work 40+ hours. I am a at home mom and a full time student. Now even though I am married I feel sigle at times even when he be home. The kids come to me when he is sitting there. I am the person they come to, talk to, take them everywhere they need to go, I am the cook the maid. I am just tired. I have told him how I feel about it things would change maybe a day or two then back to before. Is this normal?

I feel the same way. My husband of nine years works nights and I, too, am a stay at home mom. I have a eight year old boy with special needs, five year old boy and a two year old girl. He works all night and sleeps most of the day which leaves me to do everything. I have spoken to him about this and he understands (he was a stay at home dad for the first three years) We make sure to talk! Every time it gets to the point where you want to scream pull him to the side and tell him you are going to the store(as an example) Teach the kids that he is there for them too. If they hear it from daddy they might feel like he wants them to come to him. Have BOTH of you sit down and tell them that daddy is there to get that drink for you or to help you with that problem. Now I am not saying all these things will work all the time or at all but it is worth the try! I hope it gets better!

Its very normal. If you love to study try to put your concentration in that subject. You listen to songs and ofcourse happy songs, that will change the environment. I know the tiring part, as you are not doing anything creative, you are only doing a routine work and nothing new it's killing you. Involve your kids in your daily chores and get some 'me time' after they go back to sleep. This is few opinion from a full-time mom of 4 year & 4 months old babies.
