Mama, do you all have any Rescue Remedy? You all sound like you both need something to give you some space and a breather. Could you draw a warm bath with some Lavender or Epsom Salts for her and and some hot tea for you? Place a few candles in the bathroom and some soft music and make a bubble bath? Something to reconnect from a place of love. If you can move your energies toward working together rather than against each other, you can redirect toward finding a solution which works for both of you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>

I thought your children are hsing? Is she in school and the older child hsing?<br>
Am I way thinking of someone else? If my memory isn't hideous, might she be wanting to stay home with you as well?
