Hi guys, I’m 24, my fiancé is 25 and we have a 10m old together. My fiancé works from home and was the stay at home parent up until I lost my job a month ago. I was working full time. Since I lost my job, we looked at our expenses, cut back on a lot of wasteful spending and have been smarter with our money. Our 10 month old started walking this money and is a very busy baby. Today I had a working interview from 8-1:30 and my fiancé was a bit stressed from the change in routine (he’d gotten used to me being home, getting the baby ready in the morning etc) this past month and I was out of the h ..read more

Vent: preparing to solo parent again

I’m so upset right now, last month I solo parented for 3 weeks and it was hell. I love my daughter beyond belief but it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. She was in the peak of separation anxiety so I couldn’t use the bathroom, shower, eat, or do anything alone. She also went through a sleep regression during that time and I was severely sleep deprived. I had family nearby to help which was nice but I still didn’t get a break even with them around. I developed PPD and PPR during that time and I’m still struggling with it even though I’m on medication. Since my husbands been home he’s help ..read more

Going back to work part-time. So anxious.

So I quit my high stress job earlier this year for my mental health and to look after my daughter. I did some freelance work but mostly my time home was just focused on her, but because it's so expensive where we live I knew I would need to go back to work soon or find a way to make money. I've only had two freelance clients since quitting my job and not much time to work on finding others because my baby turned into a toddler, struggles with sleep and then teething was so hard for us. So I'm going back to work part-time (thankfully the job is remote but I may have to go to the office at some ..read more

I’m honestly just venting here. My husband is truly the best father and husband but sometimes I feel like I’m drowning and he doesn’t really notice. I try and communicate with him about it and he does really good with helping me around the house and letting me get a few extra hours of sleep but usually reverts right back to me doing 90% of everything. I’ve been sahm mom for close to 7 years now. We have a 6, 4, and 2 year old. We also have two dogs. I’m doing everything all day long as he’s a blue collar worker and works odd hours. I have 3 years till my kids are all in school full time and I ..read more

Anxiety about future

So I’ve been a sahm for the last 11 years and every so often I start to freak out about the future. We have no savings. I’ve obviously been out of the workforce for 11 years. The only big asset we have is our house. What happens if my husband suddenly dies? He has a decent life insurance policy $125k but I worry that they somehow they won’t pay out etc. He makes six figures but he’s recently started a side hustle of buying/selling/renting real estate.. and THAT stresses me out as well. I guess I’m just looking for guidance. submitted by /u/throwmetothewind72 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

I was a stay at home mom for about 6 years. I always kept the house clean, cooked lots of homemade food, budgeted for groceries and home items, took my daughter places when we could afford it or to the park, painted, exercised and gardener. I also had 3 mental breakdowns from being isolated from society as I got a lot of socialization from work. I started working night shift for almost a year now and it has been very helpful to me mentally but physically exhausting and I'm starting to get health problems from lack of sleep and less exercise yet more physical labor. My husband just got a new j ..read more

Y’all, I am feeling so frustrated. For context; I have a 9 year old step son, I treat him as my own, always have always will, his mom and I are best friends and we all coparent very well together, we share him 50/50 during the summer, and during the school year he stays with us M-F and moms house on the weekends just due to her work schedule and how early he’d have to be up before school if he was there during the week. He also has autism and is nonverbal, but is outgrowing the non verbal and talks a lot more, just not full sentences. His mom and I both just had babies, they’re 6 days apart ..read more

I feel like my entire life is falling apart :( my family is so broken now… my husband keeps leaving me then getting back together with me. He says I keep pressuring him to get back together and there’s been times I have and times I haven’t pushed for it. We’re a mess, I know. I know deep down it’s over but I really wish we could work things out for our son. He doesn’t even want to do counseling. Oh well, I just need to have a more positive mindset ? submitted by /u/Brave-Bus-4744 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more
