I have been a full time single parent father since my son was 4 months old, he is now 2. 5 years old.
I used to work offshore in the oil gas sector but since I became a full time parent I now work locally so I am home everyday.
We both wake up at 6am I feed,play time and wash & dress him ready for nuresry, I leave for work at 7am and I am back home at 6pm
My mother takes my son and collects him from nursery for me
I get home and feed,play time then bath him and he goes to bed at around 8pm
I either fall asleep on sofa or go to bed soon after he has, I’m only 36 but I am aways tired
At weekends we do lots of stuff and we are out alot
This is my life, I’m either at work or with my son.
Hi Marco, welcome to the forum.
Your not alone in feeling that your either at work or with your child. It’s important though to arrange a bit of time for yourself even if it’s only an hour a week.
Things will get easier.
