I have no idea what it is to be a single mother - but for the past several months I've felt alone in all parenting and domestic duties: put down when expectations aren't met, constantly reminded that I could "get a job," - although, as he's expressly stated, despite having an advanced degree, I could only consider a nights/weekends job, such as waitressing/bar tending (FYI - I did BOTH for many years and am NOT saying I'm above either!) because his career comes first.
Since I only have 4 IRL friends with kids (1 works, while hubby stays home, 2 stay home, and 1 just had her son and will be putting her son in daycare when ML runs out), I wanted to ask how CM moms handle domesticity.
I have had a lot of resentment lately (toward hubby, NEVER son). For almost 3 years I paid all of his bills, travel to see his daughter , family vacation costs, etc, before baby. And when he was at home, I still cleaned, cooked, or paid for meals out. Now, I feel like I'm expected to fill Donna Reed's shoes. Am I programmed wrong or have I "programmed my husband" wrong? How do SAHMs out there in cyberland juggle parenting/domestic obligations?
