That's what I was wondering too. Also, you couldn't even get a part time job to alleviate some of the stress and he could have a bit of time off? You two should sit down and discuss the benefits and drawbacks of you having a job, be it full or part time. Also, if the concern is being home for the kids, why not babysit? There are also places that allow the luxury of working from home. Is there a reason you haven't tried any of those?Based on what you posted, he does sound resentful that he's working and he feels you do nothing all day. Also, you have absolutely NO ONE who could watch the kids on holidays?At first, I was going to suggest letting the 12 year old watch the other two... but then I thought about my 11 year old and my 5 year old... yea... that wouldn't work! LOL Not sure how to advise there. I just remember that I was 11 when my younger sister and I were allowed to stay home alone. But that was sooooo many years ago!
