Burnt Out Dad Takes An Unusual Step To Carve Out Alone Time And His Wife Thinks It’s An Affair


Back when our daughter was born, my husband offered to watch her right as he came home from work. Aside from tending to a newborn, I was also working at the time. It was a nice arrangement, and it made sense. After all, he missed his daughter when he was gone. But that’s just one kid. Three is another story — especially if it’s three under the age of 5.

Even though it doesn’t pay, being a stay-at-home mom is still very much a job — and it’s an important one. New moms need to reschedule their lives around their kids. Often, it’s rewarding — yet still a little tiresome. That’s why it’s interesting to read about this particular predicament between a husband and wife who are currently in the midst of trying to reorganize their schedules to achieve more “me time.”

Redditor Medium_Praline_6455 took to the site to ask the question on one of Reddit’s most popular subforums. “I work full time (50-60 hours a week), and my wife is a stay at home parent to our three kids,” he explained. “All are under five. I understand that my wife is exhausted after dealing with three young kids all day Monday through Friday, but I am also exhausted when I get home.”
