Im really mad at him today, so I'll add.
Then he sits down and relaxes with the meal I cooked and had to eat standing while bouncing baby. He then turns on the tv and complains how tired he is while I finish kitchen and laundry and get ready for a night of nursing every two hours.
When Im not mad at him this doesnt bother me so much, but I am seeing red right now. Oh new thread I think!
I have boys! My first baby boy was born 10/08 and my second baby boy was born 7/12
one thing i'm looking forward to next year is moving very close to his office. his commute is only about 45 min by public transit, but we are hoping to move about 5 min away so we can see him during lunch, etc.
He leaves around 6am, and he gets home about 5:00, so 11 hours, 5 days a week. The funny thing is that he totally thinks of himself working 50 hours a week as being "daddy tracked" and taking it easy while we have little ones at home. I can't say that I ever felt the need to work that much. LOL
Usual hours are 8am til 6pm, with a 45 min commute each way.
However, crunch time is coming, and will be coming for the next 1-2 years, and DH will be working probably the same hours, but also including Saturdays and possibly Sundays as well. Neither of us is looking forwards to it.

But working? He works at home every evening... so from 8pm to 12 or 1am. So that's 5 more hours a day. When he works at home it is *much* harder for me because I have to keep the girls out of his way and quiet.
And then most weeks he has at least one, often more, evening meetings at work. So that's about 2 hours a pop.
So, my guess is that he works at best 13 hours a day, often more like 16.
We feel fortunate that his commute is so reasonable, and it's a big part of why we live where we do.
Honestly, it is very had for me to be alone so much, we're relatively new to the area, and we share one car, hubby drives into work 1-2 times a week and takes the bus the rest of the time. The bus commute is 1 hour each way, and driving is 45 minutes, so it doesn't make a huge difference when he takes the car. The one redeeming factor is that hubby makes a very nice salary after this promotion, so it doesn't feel totally 'sour' knowing how much he is making.
I think having two cars is going to make things easier, but we really want to pay off student loans before taking on another car payment, and we are also committed to getting an electric vehicle as our next car and would like to wait a couple of years for there to be more options then just the Nissan Leaf.

On Tues/Thurs he has class so he's away from home closer to 14 hours.
We only have the one car and DS hates it when Daddy leaves so we usually don't get up to see him off...we also don't really know anyone outside of DH's work so it's really just me all that time...
Wow, it's kind of depressing to see it typed out...
I think it would be easier to just say "all the time".
