How many of you watch your kids 24/7 with rarely any other help..

I watch our kids all the time... My husband rarely helps. I do everything while he works three jobs... One of the jobs we sometimes work together and i take the kids and watch them ( set them up with toys or somethign to keep them occupied while i help) other than that its alway me and them.. I will say that i have left my eldest one time when my youngest was born. but really thats it.. i want to hear your lives and how you feel about it?

  • When my husband is home and awake he's a HUGE help. But he's usually only here and awake for about 3hours a day. Just enough time for dinner and showers and whatnot... The rest of the time I'm on my own.

  • I almost always had help. No one can watch their children 24/7 without help. Kids are in school, at friends houses, some parents also work. The majority of time my son wasn't at school or I wasn't at work, he was with me.

  • My DD is with me 24/7. My SO, her dad, helps while he is home, and is very hands on, but he works 40hrs/week.
