As the title suggests, I'm trying to work out how to best manage things with DH who is a SAHD whilst I'm working self employed, full time. I am the breadwinner and he's working Fri / Sat / Sun nights to get our savings up again, so we can buy a second house on buy to let for a pension.
I'm really struggling with the fact that I'm finishing work in the office, (Shed down the garden, but it's a lovely shed) and then coming in to find that DH hasn't had chance to do the cleaning, clothes washing / drying / ironing and there's a list of stuff that needs sorting for DS1's first day at school tomorrow. Like huh??? What's he been doing with his days????
And as his route to escape from needing to the actual housework etc, he finds DIY projects that are urgent and have to be done, and palms DS1 and DS2 off to his parents so he can get on with them.
Does anyone else juggle it like this? Do I need to grow up and do more housework? Is it fair for me to expect him to manage the house whilst I work?
If I'm posting in the wrong place, apologies, but I want to hear from other people who are also self employed on this one...
