I am needing a little advice from other step-mom's, but please no bashing! My husband and I have 4 kids. The oldest 3 are from his first marriage and 2 of them are boys and they play football. We also have a little girl who is less than a year old.
My husband comes home from work at the same time as me, around 3:00. We try to eat dinner together, but then he always leaves around 4:30 to go watch the boys practice until 8:30. That leaves me to do all the clean up, take care of all the housework, dinner and bath time for the baby and getting all of my stuff ready for the next day.
When he isn't at the boys' practice, he is playing softball and the baby and I go with him. I feel like I need a little more time with him, but he feels that since he is doing something for the family, he is justified in leaving for 4 hours everyday.
I need not only a little more alone time with him, but help with housework, the baby and maybe a little alone time for myself... I'm just not too sure how to approach the situation.
Any advice will help, but again, I don't need any bashing.
