I am beyond my breaking point. I have had one or both of these kids for 9 months every. single. day. 

and I'm going to snap. SO doesn't care. He thinks Im just a miserable bitch. 

fuck yes im miserable.

i do everything.

i don't clock out.

i don't clock in.

I DON'T GET DAYS OFF.

i need a day off. i love my kids. i don't take them for granted one second of one day. EVER.

but dammit i just need a minute.

my stress level is so high, i'm a mega bitch to SO and it's fucked our relationship up, completely. he just said he's leaving me....

ALL I NEED IS A BREAK! 

some moms can stay home all day with kids and love it and never want a minute.

i'm not one of those moms and there's nothing wrong with that, we all parent differently.

just please... give me advice on how to calm down please.

Oh- and on a side note, I found out today at 9mos pedi appt that he has an umblicial hernia, just like his dad. SO (dad) just got his repaired with mesh a couple months ago.

Is there anyway you can find a babysitter and go to a movie alone or something? Just leave your kids with your SO and go out.

When your dh gets home just walk out and tell him he's watching the kids. He has no choice.

How old are your kids? Find an older teen in your neighborhood and offer her 20 bucks.

I am a sahm and like to get out once in a while too. It makes me appreciate them again when I do.

i know. i mean i get "breaks" when they go to bed and SO says that should be enough, but it's just not.

Just leave when he's home. Walk out and call him as you're pulling out of the driveway. Turn off the phone and don't come back for a couple of hours.

Make your husband take care of them for a weekend day. They are his kids too.

I'm sorry you're having a hard time. I can definitely relate, My husband works full-time and goes to school full-time, so most days, it's just me and the kids. It is very stressful and sometimes I just want to rip my hair out!

However, there have been times that I've had to go to appt's or grocery shopping, ect and SO has HAD to watch the kids. It made him appreciate what I do so much more. If you can get your SO to keep the kids, by himself, just for a few hours, he would probably realize how stressful it is and give you a much needed break every now and then.
