Hey mamas, I recently started working again after being a SAHM for two years. ( two babies one year apart) I also have a child in elementary school. How would any of you feel if you typically don’t go to sleep until 1-2 is, get woken up to feed the baby at 4 am every night, wake up at 6 to get your oldest and yourself ready for school. I bring her to school and drive an hour to work while my husband stays home since he can’t find work right now. I’ll come home after work and clean the house because nothing has been done, cook dinner, and as soon as I walk in the door, I can’t even take my scrubs off or get a minute to unwind before every responsibility of a SAHM is on my shoulders again. I’m exhausted. I don’t know how to approach the situation; I just feel as it’s unfair that I have to work, come home clean, cook do absolutely everything, and it’s not so much a team effort anymore and more so all on my shoulders. Any advice?
Talk to your husband about it. He should be helping whether he works or not but definitely since he doesn’t do anything all day, unless he’s actually physically unable to do things he should be helping. Be honest with him about it. Good luck
