My DF has been out of work for 4 months and at last he has a job which he starts Monday
Due to him being here with me at home since DD was born we have been alternating who gets up early with her and who does early morning feeds etc.
Since he got the job, he has been saying "now that I am working, your going to have to do all the feeds and early mornings etc" He said it with a cheeky smile etc but it got me thinking about what I did expect...
I also have a 3 year old DS. So my days are long like any parent. Up with DD at 5am..she rarely naps, but even when she does, I am looking after DS. Its not like I can nap when she does and DS hasnt napped for over a year now. My days are just as long and often stressful like any person who has a job outside the home..
n the other hand, I also respect the fact that DF needs to be at his best and productive at work in order to keep his job and support us financially which, as we all know, can be tough when sleep deprived..
SO, whats your thoughts? Do you still share the load both ways? Or......??
