Bad day :(

Hey moms do you ever feel like your a single parent when your not? How do you deal with it? Am I just being unappreciative of what I do get from him? Also have you felt like you've hit rock bottom after the baby? Things are so tight and hard right now I've never been in this situation before

    Hugs. I know how you feel. There have been times I totally feel like this, have you talked to him about how you feel? I know if I talk to David about it, he tries to help a little more.

    He tries he just doesn't understand and both of us are so stressed from the family change and all the new responsibilities and getting by that we just feed off each other and make things worse

      There are a lot of days I feel like this. I don't really have any solution...I just hug my babies and realize I do it all for them. That helps a little. I'm convinced that I make it look too easy to my husband. He just doesn't get how hard it is! And it took me a while to realize that that is ok. He has no way of knowing how hard it is, life raising kids is not 50/50 and it shouldn't be. As babies they need their mommy so much more...it's just natural. It sure does make a lot of work for Mom though and Dad just kinda seems to skate by...but it does start to even out and get easier, changing the way you think about it helps...even though it seems impossible some days.

      Thank you I needed to hear that I just get so worn down trying to do everything. You know I still work, I coupon, I promote melaleuca, I blog and as you know play mommy and housewife but the bills keep adding up and I don't feel like I'm doing enough or doing any of it well

          Thanks Karen my boyfriend and I try to have us time at night on the weekends my son is only 6 months old and goes to bed at a decent time to leave us a couple hours but he works nights through the week so I don't see him much and when he's home he sleeps through the whole day. Your a strong woman for being a military wife I couldn't do it even before kids

            I appreciate you all! It's been hard to find people that really understand life after kids

              I understand how you feel, my husband works two hours away so that we can live in a slightly better area and that we can be close to family. By the time he gets home the kids are getting ready for bed. I pretty much do as much as I physically can so that all he has to do is worry about work and the major stuff around the house that I can't do. but it is tough some days.......................hang in there :)

                I feel like this too. After our baby was born all we do is argument all the time about our family . He does not help as much as though when we where going to have a baby he wants me to do everything but I'm tired . I left my job to stay home and take care of him because I want the best for my baby no daycare . My whole family live in Florida we live in New York
                I wish I can move to closer to my family but I think he does not like my family and I do not like his family either oh boy big problem. Now we have a newborn in the house and I do not want to fight over stupid things . My baby is 5 weeks old . Hang in there I'm

                Thanks girl it gets better with time. A friend of mine told me to get rid of your expectations for your husband because he won't meet them lol we've gotten better if I just expect nothing from him and appreciate what he does do for me it's a nice surprise for me and he loves the praise he craves it now that my son is the spotlight now. Not every day will be good I still can't stand his face more days than not but communication and appreciation are the biggest elements to always strive for
