I agree with Nikki . . . .couple time is important. But HOW???? I am still learning how to balance my wife/mother/work/house responsibilities. As much as I hate to admit it . . . My Husband seems to have been pushed off to the side for the moment. Work. . . I go everyday. Can't say much more than that. I love the people I work with . . . but I hate my job. I want to be home taking care of my family. I know that and I also know there is nothing I can do about it. Thankfully, my husband helps with the house responsibilities and does a great job at it! The mother responsibility is fabulous, but I don't get enough time with her.
My day consists of getting up at 4:50. I leave for work at 6 am. Work from 6:30 - 3:30. Get home around 4:15. Get some loving from my beautiful daughter if she is awake. We play for an hour and then I start dinner and she goes in her seat. Bath time is after dinner and then bed around 7:30. THEN it's time for laundry and cleaning until my bedtime around 10. Then up a few times to get Gabrielle . . .and back at it again. How do I manage this better???? It's not working. I don't get enough time with Gabrielle and I DEFINITELY don't get enough time with my husband. I'm not sure when we actually had a conversation about something other than our daughter. If only we lived in a perfect world . . . .
How do you balance your duties???
