    stop considering him for things like lunch until he pulls his socks up. if he's hungry, he knows where the fridge is, has arms and legs etc.
    Totally agree with this @LittleMissSunshine!

    Yes. This. When we have it at work its 'bake/make/bring' something and gold coin donation to eat it. I would assume it is something similar?

    If you do not want to bake maybe bring some nice tea/hot chocolate or something? Thats if she asked for you to bring something.

    I've been up since 445am with the kids and he's still sleeping.

    Right now I have zero love for him. I might even hate him.
    Men can be so cluess. Actually anyone who isn't there everyday don't get the daily grind. I have found the best approach is to just say something like "hey hun I am busy with the girls can you make us lunch". Even better is to give him a choice. "Hey hun the girls need a bath and dinner needs to be done/the washing needs to be pegged out which do you want to do. I will do the other".

    Don't let him sleep in. Send the girls in for daddy cuddles. Suggest he have a daddy date (one on one time) with one or both of them.

    So disheartened. Pretty sure I'm going to be made redundant My mat leave is up and they have asked me to take extra time up in the hope they will have work for me later. There are no jobs in my field around. I'm feeling quite down. My job was a big part of my identity and I miss the intellectual stimulation. No idea what I'm going to do. Need a new career. Living in a regional area with high unemployment, have a 1 year old baby and FIFO partner - my chances are slim 😪

    Huge hugs. I know how you feel. I'm a SAHM now, because of circumstance. We moved to a regional area for DH's job. Nothing here for me for work, or work really unless I go into health or allied health. I didn't really feel particularly strongly about my job, but I was good at it, it provided lots of opportunities to problem solve and think outside the square, negotiate and deal with a lot of dispute resolution. I didn't realise how much my job shaped my identity and feelings of self worth until I didn't have it, iykwim. I'm struggling to come to terms with being "just" a SAHM. It doesn't help that it is a question asked whenever you meet someone or catch up with an acquaintance you haven't seen in ages. I think I need to retrain.

    Did you know there were going to be pets? If the real estate didn't tell you then maybe the real estate should cover it.
