What time does your DP/F/H leave for work in the morning and what time do they get back?
DF leaves at 6:30am and doesn't get home until usually after 5pm
(Single parents, FIFO mummies and those with parents in the armed forces are all welcome to roll their eyes and tut tut and my little sulk)

Question for SAHMs...

My DH leaves at about 7am and gets home most of the time just before 7 pm to see DD before she goes to sleep, sometimes neither of us see him!
He is a bit of a workaholic though!

Leaves home between 6.30-7 and gets home between 5.30-6. And I thought that was pretty good.
A few friends partners don't get home til much later so I feel pretty lucky to have him home for dinner.
And I must admit I actually find it easier in the morning with him out of the house. I have a nice routine and when he's home that gets thrown out of whack.

It's hard to answer because everyday is different. A 'typical' work day is from round 7.30am -4pm but then if he goes on flights he could be home around midnight or the next morning, some times he doesn't leave for work until later in the day, some days he comes home early, some days he leaves and returns 3 weeks or 3 months later - it all just depends.
I'm not going to tut tut at all but i do think you are pretty lucky to have a DH who is home the same time everyday and it's not too late, i'm sorry you are having a hard time though

i'm not a sahm (work part-time 1-2 days a week) but my hubby leaves for work at 2.30 am and gets home about 2.30 / 3.30pm.
he also works saturdays but only till 11am.
mornings don't bother me at all not having him there. it's nice that he is home in the afternoon so he can spend time with the kids.

Leaves at 6.45 and home at 6.30. He has an hour commute to work so he's doing well I reckon. We eat at 6.45 and DS goes to bed at 7.45 so he does the bath/story/bed routine every night.
Much better than in our previous child free life where an 11pm finish wasn't uncommon. He even worked until 4.30am once then was back in the office by 8am. So glad he left that job.

Currently he leaves at 6:30am and gets home at 5:30pm.
When the kids were first born (06-08) he left at 5:30am and got home at 7pm, which was hard on him cause he'd only see the kids for 5 minutes before they'd go to bed.

We are really lucky, we now live on site at dhs work, it's in town as well, so he walks 1 minute to work. He comes home for smoko and lunch breaks. Makes it so much easier. He has been working nights this week, and not having to drive home is great.

On the two days I'm at home, my partner leaves at a bit before 7am and get homes at 6.30pm. It's an hour or so commute each way.
My son and I are almost always sleeping when he leaves though.
