all know details of being a mom, what's fine with me, but ... what would you do? have help over there?

help, my husb. picks up hrs and works overtime for over a month now - more than 8 hrs/day, 6 days/week. he's job is 3rd shift, so he gets ready for it at 9pm , leaves at 10pm, works till 9am, and gets home arround 10am if not later to account for his trips here and there (what i do not approve at all as he does sucky purchasses, not to call it 'glocceries'!). later he eats something and goes to bed. sleeps till 4pm or would even 6pm, if i have to wake him up to help me a tiny bit with our son, he wants to make money. i tell him we need help running the home - housekeeping or would send baby to daycare soon, but he wants me to have my job 1rst. no time for me to look up. set up an interview. i do bills, cook, care for baby etc, sometimes i sleep in the evenings... we are financially independent from the prenup. so i really shall care less for his debt. what about my lifestyle? retirement? shall i leave and go back overseas?

  • Good grief, how can so many women complain about this same works to provide and all she can gripe about is not getting more from him. Be thrilled you have a man who works and cares for you and provides for his family. Find a drop off daycare or Mother's Day Out and then go on your interviews if you don't have family, friends or a neighbor to watch the child.

  • What? It must be too early in the morning because I have no idea what you are saying. You are all over the place story wise.

  • i am having a really hard time understanding what you are saying. I do see that the catty bitch above apparently thinks all a man needs to do is throw a little money her way and doesn't understand partnership and parenting very well.

  • All I got is you want to take this man's child out of the US. I hope you have a lot of money for transportation because you will be helping pay for sending the child back and forth to visit his father. I see no reason for your complaining. You need to get over it and be happy your and the baby is being taken care of. There are a lot of men in this country that are trash and wouldn't be caring for you. When my husband worked and I stayed home I took care of the kids (5 kids) the house and everything.

  • I have to agree with everyone else "I am having a hard time understanding the question" but if you are saying what I think you are saying. I would love to be able to stay home all day keeping my home together and taking care of my kiddos. I love my husband and would be missing our one on one time but if he was making the choice to work all day so we could have a better life and I was able to be SAHM I would just be greatful that I had a man willing to do that. If these things aren't what you want let him know and you guys really need to sit down and discuss it. GL
