I'm just curious what a 'typical' day for a working dad with babies is like. I'm not trying to compare my DH, but I am wondering if other dads find it hard to do all the family things after a day on the job. Maybe you have some tips for me to help me gently encourage DH to come play with us every once and a while.
To give you an idea of our situation, I am a SAHM and DH is a driver and crew leader for a growing moving company and works out of the home at least 8 hours a day, often more. He also works most Saturdays. We have DD, 18m and DS, 4m and money is tight. We are getting by but not ahead and I know this stresses him out. How can I help him?
