|Daughter, Wife, & Mommy|
Does your relationship with your husband always have to change when a new baby comes in the picture? Before Uriah we were closer than we are now. I think it has to do with a lot of things. Strain on finances, time, and attention. I mean, little guy eat $6 of formula a day, and we were already just making ends meet before he got here. We did pay off my husband's car which was $200 a month, but others things come up. So far having this baby in just 2 months has cost us $4000. We weren't prepared for that much. More like $2500 tops. Then, my husband works 40-52 hours a week. And when he's home, he's always doing other things seems like. Mowing his dad's yard and ours. Visiting his mother. Gardening with his dad. Scouting hunting spots. Fishing. Practicing archery. Coming up with lessons for his youth group on Thursday nights. While I get to stay at home with the baby. Day after day is so similar. It gets really boring being a SAHM to a newborn. I was looking at homeschooling curriculum for 3 year olds & preschool and I just can't wait to interact with him in more ways! I think when I'm happier, my relationship with hubby will be better too.
