that she's become accustomed to.
I'm a husband/father; not a wife/mother but there is SO MUCH truth to what you said.
Our situation is a little different. I work construction (start the day early/finish the day early-ish) and my wife works in the medical field which
allows her to work the evening shift to limit our need for babysitters. While neither of us travel for work, we essentially only see each other on
the weekends (when neither of us work overtime).
She does the day stuff. Getting him ready for school, dropping him off, picking him up. I do the night stuff. Homework, dinner, bath and
It's definitely gotten a LOT better but I absolutely know what you mean about the disruption of routines. There was a point when during the weekends,
as the time of the nightly rituals SHOULD get started.... I would find myself almost annoyed that she was around and things didn't go as they normally
I know this is a far cry from having a spouse that is hundreds or thousands of miles away (because even when we don't really "see" each other for days
we see evidence in the house of each other), but you nailed it in your post.
