Having a newborn is making me reconsider marrying my fiance. He says he wants to do more, but it feels like that's only going to happen if I make him. He says he wants to take a motn feeding, but he'll only do it if I make the bottle and sit it out for him and that's only happened once. He says he wants to change more diapers, but in the last week since he's said this, he's changed 3. I'm exhausted and making stupid mistakes at work because of it. I don't know how much longer I can keep this up.
Today was my last day at my job. It has been a rough year there. I have been working as a reading tutor for a school. About 3 weeks ago, someone stole my word study kit that I used to tutor with. I paid about $100 for the kit and the supplies to put it together. Then this week I went to get my fan I let a teacher borrow and someone had stolen that too. It was taken out of a closet. It took all my will power not to tell all the bitches there to fu off!! But it now in home with my baby for good!! I still cried when I picked her up from her last day of daycare. They had put together a good-bye book of all the handprints of the babies in the infant room. We were lucky enough to find a daycare that was so amazing!
I feel like I'm not doing great at balancing two kids and I just don't know how to do any better. My 2 year old deserves a lot of attention that I don't have when my LO is EBFing, doesn't want to be put down, and is a terrible napper. I want to take her outside more but its such a challenge. Before it was too cold or too rainy and now it's too hot. And how do you chase/play with a 2yr old while you hold/take care/entertain/keep safe a baby who hates being in the carrier. Sooo on goes the TV.
@g0lightly8706 it's funny that he'd rather her sleep in an unapproved rock and play rather than a crib. Tell him the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends putting baby to sleep on her back on a firm mattress. The semi-reclined position of the RnP can restrict airflow. Airflow restriction = higher chance of SIDS.Show him this article. https://www.candokiddo.com/news/rocknplay
I'm not a single mother, but sometimes I feel like one. My poor hubby is working 2 jobs to make ends meet, so of course when he's home he needs to rest! I know that. But it doesn't keep me from getting ragey when I have one million things to do and a baby who doesn't like to be put down and a husband who's snoring away. So then I get mad at him and mad at me for being mad at him. Fun times...
