Husband travels a lot for work and I need childcare help
I run into so many moms now days who have husbands that travel for work on a monthly and weekly basis and they have little to no childcare help. Well, I have to ben honest and say that I can’t relate to the moms who have traveling husbands so often, but I do know that it’s extremely difficult to play mother and father role when my husband does work late.
My heart truly breaks for the stressed out mothers that I meet who have husbands who travel for work because they’ve told me that they feel like single mothers trying to keep the home knit together perfectly all while they are personally unraveling daily. They feel like they are falling apart because they barely have time to sit down or much less do anything fun or relaxing for themselves and don’t even ask about having a social life. You see, when the husband does come home the mother wants to spend time with him and the children as a cohesive family unit and not away with the girlfriends or out shopping.
I’ve also noticed that mothers of husbands who travel often carry around a huge suitcase of guilt for wanting to hire a part-time or full-time nanny or housekeeper to help them with the children and home. They have “mommy-guilt” glaring at them in the face for thinking of such a thought. They feel a tremendous weight of guilt strangling them so tightly because they feel that they are the ones who truly hold the family together tightly and they are supposed to have it all together and do it all by themselves.
You see, mothers of husbands who travel often tend to feel such a heavy weight of guilt for desiring to hire a nanny or housekeeper because they also don’t want to burden their husbands with extra “things” to weigh him down while he is away at work; However, when you hire a nanny or housekeeper the opposite happens to your life. The family actually can spend more time together and less time stressing about racing from swim practice to soccer to the grocery store. The husband and wife can actually have more date nights together and the mother can even have some quiet time away while the husband is gone by having the nanny watch the children.
