I have asked him to not coach again because it is to large of a commitment for our family. Eating dinner as a family every night is very important to me and we have 3 other children that also deserve his attention. I stay home with the kids and am new to the town we live in and really look forward to adult interaction after playing babies and dress up all day why tying to keep everything picked up around the house. I try to go to some of the games or practices to get out of the house but then it's eating dinner after 8 and the 18month old wont have that and we cant afford to eat out very often with it being six of us. I also don't want to feed my kids junk for dinner they need a complete meal not nachos from the concession stand. Keeping the laundry up for 6 people is a full time job in itself and I really want him to be home in the evenings helping with the children why I continue with the housework and prepare the meals. So anyway please tell me if I'm a spoiled brat that just needs to adjust to being home by myself all day or am I being reasonable by asking him not to coach next year.
I will also add our 18month old is a real climber and you must be by her side at all times or you will find her on the kitchen counter or playing in the toilet so she really wears me out during the day and it very difficult to cook with out someone to help watch her.
Update Thank you all for your post. Whoever said I shouldn't of had so many kids should look at the previous messages to see that I only have 2 biological children the other 2 are my step children that I love dearly that have a mother that is not involved at all. Yes I'm very overwhelmed I went from 1 to 4 kids in 2 years and the first year of that was a nasty custody battle in court so I'm sorry if you all think I'm selfish or its all about me but I really believe our family needs to take a little break from the constant running I'm not saying forever just sometime to regroup. Sports are important to the kids but they are way more important to my husband. As one Person said I told him I was feeling overwhelmed and asked him not to do it and he did it anyway.
