Hey all, I’m looking for some advice on how to hear both my wife and my kids during the night while I’m sleeping. While my wife was pregnant with our first child I heard her instantly when she needed help turning or anything else; but now with our first son born and in the room in his crib and she’s pregnant with our second child (third trimester) it seems I only hear him stirring in the night...

I’ve tried to make it work but I’m not happy, we mainly just got together because I got pregnant. There’s no romance, terrible communication, I feel like he doesn’t really care. I really wanted it to work for the kids but I just want more, I know it’s selfish. I just feel like there’s nothing else I can do.
It seems like anytime we argue my SO brings it up. How I can’t spend money. Or paying the bills. Etc. it just hurts my pride so much, I used to work and did whatever I wanted with my money, Now with kids, we thought it’d be better for me to stay home and watch them so we won’t have to pay for daycare.
Just curious about the dynamics of other people’s relationships with their SO. I’m a sahm so I end up doing most of the planning on a day to day basis, daily decisions... which is fine and understandable to me. My son is 3 years old now and I have had the same conversation with my husband about this so many times. As far as date nights, family outings and anniversaries, I have done all the pl... More
my baby is now 9 days old and my husband still has only changed 2-3 diapers. he doesn’t do any house work. and we have 2 dogs that he used to take care of but now it has fallen on my shoulders as well. he doesn’t work and all he does is play video games all day long and sleep throughout the night while all my life is is baby. I feed her, change her, take care of the dogs, do the house work and ... More
My SO is going through a lot with his job. Last night he said he wanted to visit his parents and talk to his dad about it. Around 10:30 I get a text saying “going to bed, goodnight”. No call, didn’t discuss he was going to sleep there. This morning I text and call him and no answer. I texted his parents asking if he’s coming home and this is unacceptable for a grown man and he should be home wi... More

How much time does the father of your child(ren) spend with them? My partner and I are raising three kids together. The older two are his from a previous marriage, but we have them most of the time. The youngest is ours together. I’m a SAHM and my partner works from home a lot of the time. His work is often slow, so he is home doing nothing all day. He rarely helps me with anything and doesn’t ... More
I have been thinking about trying again with my ex, with whom I share a 3-yr-old son. We broke up 3 years ago, so our son has never really seen us together, kissing, etc. He has been wanting to try again pretty much since we broke up, and I feel like we both have changed as people and certain things aren’t factors anymore (like, for instance, his ex, who did a lot of meddling in our relationshi...

My fiancé and I met 4 years ago. We were trying to take things slow relationship wise since I already had a child, and we only saw each other once a week for the first 5 months. I wound up getting pregnant after only knowing each other 5 months, but we were both excited and decided to move in together once the baby was born. Fast forward to now, we have a 3 year old and we just don’t seem to ha... More
My husband and I haven’t had sex in two years. It’s not lack of trying but since our second kid, it’s just not happening. We have really great open, honest and candid communication about it but btwn being exhausted at the end of the day and wanting it at different times, it just stops there. We flirt, fondle, and kiss we just don’t make it to sex. I suppose I’m just looking to see if any one... More
I need your advice on how to fix my marriage and how knowing that my husband is not willing to go for counselling and that i really want to fix it, we have been married for 10 years. Please be patient with my long post. My husband has always been the type of husband who expects me to do it all; all house chores laundry cooking etc., drop offs-pick ups of kids, putting them to sleep and even te... More
How do you all keep yourselves from resenting your husbands when your workload is unequal. We both work full time. I almost always cook dinner, I clean up dinner, I do all the laundry except my husband’s, I get kids to and from day care, I give baths, I pay bills. my husband does watch the kids when he is off work and I am working. He also helps get the kids to bed when he is not workin... More
I’m a full time working mom of twins, my husband works full time too. Life is busy life is stressful. My husband is a great Dad. But he is not good with helping around the house. He works a 9-5 type job, he usually goes to the gym and doesn’t get home until 7:30ish pm. I do shift work, so I work 7-7 three days a week. The kids are with Grandma when we are both at work. The issue with my schedul... More
I am a stay at home mom and in need of a break as I am the primary caregiver for my child. When we last went on vacation over a year ago, I suggested to my husband that we share some tasks such as taking turns to feed dinner, going to the beach with our kid etc so that We both could get some Me time on vacation. My husband is super nice but clueless about taking the initiative to do baby-chores... More
My LO is 18mo and my step child is 10 years old. My husband doesn’t want anymore children but I know if I don’t have another I’m really going to regret it. He is 100% adamant on not having anymore. I’m not sure what to do because I’ve been having really bad baby fever.
SO works a ton, and otherwise sadly doesn’t appreciate quality family time, he is always either working or really tired. I stay at home with the kids but work part time remotely, and his parents always reach out to me reminding me how they are retired and can help babysit or will say you should go do this so we can come over and watch the kids. For one, when they come over they stay for hours s... More
I need some advice. I am a stay at home mom that occassionally works as an independent contractor. I get up pretty early to take my kids to school, and get a start on my day. Although, my husband doesn't. He goes to work whenever he wants [also, an independent contractor] so he doesn't have a super weird schedule where I would have to be mindful of noise level. BUT, everyday when I com... More
