I know so many people have it a LOT worse than me and honestly, I'm not moaning. I'm just wondering if how I feel is normal.
My husband works long hours and due to a pretty literal series of unfortunate events we have NO wider family at all. The only one we have is my SiL who lives in Australia. This means we have to work out all issues pertaining to childcare ourselves.
I know there are many in the same boat on here but in my "real life" it's really unusual and everyone can leave their babies with grandparents and sisters for an hour or two. My husband is really good, and he recognises I sometimes need a break so that's arranged. But I still feel the isolation of bringing children up in a sort of self contained way.
