Do any of your partners work such long hours that they dont see your kid/s at all during the week?
Dh is currently looking for a new job after being made redundant, so he cant be too picky, just needs to take what he can get.
One of the jobs he is interviewing for is further away than where he previously worked, as opposed to a train trip & a short walk, it will be a train & a bus, or two buses. Driving is not an option, there is nowhere to park.
This means he will need to leave earlier than he was in the morning, so he is unlikely to see ds before he wakes up. And he is never home in time to see ds before he goes to bed. Ds adores him & it makes me sad that he wont understand why he doesnt see his daddy at all during the week.
How do you manage this? How do you explain to your kids where their daddy is? Ds is only 9 months old but is very alert & aware & perceptive.
How do you make sure you both get a break that isnt work? Ds will be in daycare 3 days a week while im at work but there is no-one to help me & give me a break on the other 2 days.
