I'm dating a sporting nut! My boyfriends son who is 5 years old does 3 sports. Swimming, football and basketball. My bf coaches his sons basketball and football teams. My bf also coachs a semi professional basketball team. The schedule is full on!
Monday: his sons swimming lesson
Tuesday: planning and coaching paper work.
Wednesday: coach basketball
Thursday: sons football practice
Friday: his son and him watch the football game on tv
Saturday morn: his sons basketball training and game
Saturday afternoon/ night: bf's basketball game ( usually its an away game so there's a lot of travel)
Sunday: his sons football game
My bf doesn't get paid for any of this. He works part time minimum wage at a grocery store because it's stressfull and too time consuming to do both ( work, sport and his sons sport even though he has 3 bachelor degrees and could make a great living!!)
I feel this is too much and I struggle with where I fit in with his schedule. I have a daughter of my own and she does just one sport and that is just one swimming lesson per week. My BF's sons bio mother doesn't help out paying the sport fees or helps with the transport so my bf always does the picking up and dropping off to his sons sports. I'm getting fed up and overwhelmed by all this and the schedule. I worry what my life will be like if we ever married! I also worry that my bf will continue to have a part time job because he's over committed to his sport and his sons sport.
Am I over reacting? Is this normal? What would you do in this situation?
