I have two daughters aged 3 and 5 and I live alone with them. One has been ill this week and I’m really struggling to cope with a limited support network of only my elderly parents. I have a boyfriend of 1 year (not their dad) who is very helpful when he is here. He’s away at the moment for 8 days and its been a hell of a shock to the system remembering how hard this is. It’s absolutely a 2 man job. I don’t want to depend on my new boyfriend but I’m desperate for help! Is there no-one we can call as single parents?! I want someone to help with bedtimes and mornings! My daughters deserve it!
How often do I rant the same way. But we have to take it as it is. You will come out at the other end. Ask the tooth fairy or Santa Claus ;-). They might be available. I mislaid their numbers, but I am sure with the help of our favourite search engine…. Have a good night.
Hi. Sorry things are difficult atm. Can your parents take them for a few days or an overnight? Or can you go to stay with them for a bit then you have an extra pair of hands? I’m guessing it’s back to school soon though which will help. Get your youngest into child-care for the 15 hours a week etc.
Yes it is definitely a 2 person job! If your bf is going to be around for a while he must appreciate that he is taking on 3 of you. Give him what you expect his role to be but also ask him what he sees as his role.
