The husband & helping out
My husband helps when he can but his health isn't that great. So he has to not help some times and I have learned to just take over.I think I have been starting to get kinda bossy. And I'm not sure if that's a good thing.Because he can't help me. Does anyone else deal with this kinda thing? Or is it just me?
I think as mothers we all feel a certain "my way is best". I do because I'm home all day with Charlie. Nobody knows his noises the way I do because I've spent many hours figuring them out. But it's also important that Dad know too. So every night whether it's for a minute or an hour, Dad gets just him and Charlie time and mom gets time to herself.
I think the best thing you could do is find things that the hubs CAN help with. Even if it's something small. For example, I take baths with Charlie so it's Dad's responsibility to come get him, dry him off, put his lotion on, get him dressed etc. If you find small stuff he can still feel included, you won't feel so bossy and things will still get done. I would love to hear about your progress, hang in there!
Mostly I just have to watch what I say and how I say it. It's easier when Avery goes to bed and I can turn off the mom thing for a little bit.
