Life with 3 kids under 3 and trucker who is gone 4 weeks or longer

by lara

Stressful. I have 3 kids and only help on nights. My kids are 2 1/2 1 yr and 3 months old. I wake up all hours of the night worrying about my kids and how they feel when daddy leaves all the time.

My son got time with my husband my baby girl only got 6 months. Now he is gone for over a month at a time and home just long enough for baby girl to get to know him then he is gone again.

After finding out I was pregnant with my youngest he decided to truck without asking me. I love him but at my end. I can never go out and do anything and when he comes home he acts as if he has the hard job. Sorry u dont.

U men set around driving. Us wives do everything. We start from 2 am oh the baby is crying, oh the other one is up, 4 am the other is up. Now they are all asleep the dog goes off.

They are all awake 6 am. Ok breakfast. Breast feeding the baby,making the other 2 food, and walk the dog. Now that's over I can set a minute. Oh nope kids are into it. Ok now lunch time clean up and clean the house. Nap time.

Wait they don't wanna sleep fight with them over they are finally asleep. Now time for me. 5 mins and the kids are up. Now time to go to Walmart with three kids. 15 mins to get ready and in the car. Ok 10 mins to get them out of the car and into the store. Oh u have to leave cuz they are all throwing a fit.

Back home to make supper. Take the trash out walk the dog don't forget to breast feed the baby 8 to 10 times in the day. Bath time for all of them. Now bed. Oh the day never ends. But the worse thing is I'm doing it on my own with no support from my husband.

Most days he calls 10 times right in the middle of getting the kids to sleep. Doctor appointments are the worse. But in the end I love my kids and my husband so I just do it.
