Very rarely. I have been taking classes but doing it at home, so mainly in the evening and have only given Nathaniel away once to go out on our anniversary evening. Apart from that, I am with him on a permanent basis!
I am offered help all the time, I just don't really take it
I work 3 days a week, two 10.5hr shifts and one 5hr. If I start before 9am Alfie sleeps at my mums. So I leave him two full days, half a day and usually two nights a week. I feel bad but tbh I have to work and I'd rather he was with my mum rather than nursery and also I prefer him staying at my mums if I start early as it's mean dragging him out of bed at 6am when he doesn't usually get up for another hour or two.
The worst part is that because I leave him for work, I tend not to want to leave him to do adult things on the weekend because I feel guilty I've left him so much already. But I don't mind really, if I really want to go somewhere that can't accommodate children my mum is fine with it but like 9.5/10 I'll turn it down. So I never really get a break because when I don't have him I'm working.
I used to leave him twice a week from 7 months for 4hrs to go uni, lucky as it was my
final year I only had 2 modules and done my dissertation at home when he was sleeping ect.
I feel like I leave him a lot now, but bills need to be paid so needs must.
I'm a SAHM but I MIL takes her out on Sundays, she used to stay out overnight but I stopped it because it messed up her routine Sometimes she stays out in the evening if me and oh want to go out for a meal or the cinema or something but that's prob only twice a month x
Im away a lot I leave the house at 8 am Monday - Thursday don't get back til 6 pm and fridays I work at 5am and don't get back til 5 pm their dad gets them every other night but if he works til 9 I have them from 6-9 and I have them every Saturday morning and sometimes at night same for Sunday.
