DH has bent over backwards for me since our DS was born almost 6mths ago. Ive struggled with PND for a second time and once again, he stepped up and took control of everything. BOTH the kids, housework and a very demanding job that has resulted in him being up untill all hours once we are all asleep, to get work done because i have needed him at home as soon as he can get off work.
He prepares our meals, meal plans, does the grocery shopping, cleans up after dinner, gets the kids ready for bed and goes into ds to give him a bottle thru the night when im too exhausted. basically will do anthing i dont get around to doing or anything i ask him to do, he will. We have home help for a while, so we are both getting a break from the housework.
Im worried he is burning the candlestick at both ends. I know he is exhausted he just wont whinge about it to me.
I want to do something for him to show him how much i appreciate all he has done, but i dont have any money to spend.
Im so lucky to be with him, i cant believe he has put up with some of the stuff i have been going through - for a second time.
What would you do?
I should also add, my ds doesnt sleep longer than 15-30mins at a time during the day and wont allow me more than 5 mins before he starts screming to be picked up and held. I HATE baby wearing him, it gets in my way and he's heavy! I'd love to be able to organise a nice dinner at home just the two of us, he's a big foodie. I just cant get the time and most days i just have no energy left.
