Mommy Burnout.

Now don't get me wrong..I truly truly love my children, lol but right now I feel as if I have a bit of mommy burnout..if there is even such a thing.

I don't get much help at home..so from the time I wake up till the time the girls are asleep its all on me baby :) lol.

Just for once..I would like J to wake up and dress the girls and pack the bags and make the lunches...
And make ME coffee before I get out of bed..

Just for one evening I would love J to bath the girls while I try cook dinner and load laundry and pack lunches. Heck he can even do all that..and I'll do what he does :) (Play PS3)

Just for one weekend I would love J to get up early with the girls and let me lie in a bit..seen as I get up on average an hour earlier then him in the mornings.

Even though I am always busy on weekends..quite often both days I always either have one or both girls with me..even to book club. In fact I can't remember when last I went to book club without a child lol.

I know it sounds horrid..but after the last long weekend I was almost glad to be back at work? So I could just sit in one place for more then 5 mins and not have anyone ask me for anything lol.

Oh...and to be able to use the bathroom in peace :) :) :)

I feel that as a rule men should take over those duties on at least 2 days a week. If you could lie in one day over a weekend and have a 'rest' day one day during the week, things could be SO much easier!!!

Sounds odd but I have more help now than I did when I was married!

Not just from my mom but from other moms who help out where they can!

Its hard tho and there are often sunday evenings I cant WAIT to get back to work!!

I certainly wouldn't put up with his highness sitting on his arse playing games while you do ALL the work. Thats just not fair. Don't let him get away with it. You can't do it all. I can image you're glad to be back at work so you can at lease pee in peace...

Oh Tanya I so know where you're coming from... is there no-one you can ask to have the girls for a little while just to go to book club or something?
