I am a sahm but I do work part time a few days a week just to get a break and make some extr dough. My dh works a ton, and we don't have much time together, not even a full day ever. If he isn't at work, I am minus 2 nights a week. We rarely have help so we rarely date or have our own nights out. It seems a lot easier for dh to get out when he wants to though. He can leave work to go to sports events, appointments etc with no problem. If I want to do anything, I usually take the kids or just don't get to do anything. My dh doesn't get how hard it is to find people to help me even though I have told him. I feel like he has a lot more freedom than me and it honestly makes me feel lonely, jealous and resentful. Its taking its toll, but dh just tells me im being rediculous and unfair.
Does anyone else feel like they are taken for granted? Don't get me wrong I am glad to have the opportunity to be home with my babies (we really don't have an option) but sometimes I wish I was able to get more 'me' time, especially when I want it.
