He takes care of the kids during the day, goes to Dr. appointments, meals, cleans, yard work, etc...but he is the lucky one who also gets to go to the park during the day with the boys, plays with them, calls and tells me the funny things they say...I miss all of that. Pregnancy is hard, parenting is hard, being a housewife is hard, being the sole provider is hard...it is ALL hard at times. It's your perspective that can either make it easier or make it that much more harder.
You had it really tough Mommybean but you're a strong woman and I really admired that. It is HOW we looked at it ... I wanted to blame on my hormones but needless to say, deep inside I know it's something that I myself need to change.
Though I did all the housework ... my DH also did his fair share. And for that, I love him and felt guilty that I am even complaining.
So thank you all for all your wonderful advices. I prayed that God will bless me with the talent of a good housewife/mother.
