It is going on 3 year now of being a SAHM. Dh works full time and sometimes long days or he is traveling. For the past month and a half, I have becoming increasingly more sore and tired with this pregnancy. On several occasions, I have asked DH for a "break" away from the kids so I can either rest or trying to get my head above water in terms of cleaning, laundry and prepping for this new little one. Everyday, I just do the bare minimum to get by (making breakfast lunch and dinner for the girls) and cleaning up from that, then entertaining the girls so they don't get into trouble and fight with one another. I have no energy by the end of the day left for any housework.
So, what I am longing for is a day or two where I can focus on other things than the kids! What would be even nicer is to not have to do housework with this "break" but that will never happen!
Is it selfish of me to expect DH, who works full time to then take the girls for a weekend? I have asked him this, but he turns around and says things likes "I work too. I am tired at the end of the day, too"
There are times when I think about working full time again--teaching. And, on somedays, it sounds better to me than being home!
Thanks for reading and letting me vent!
