I am a part time working mother of a 2 year old who’s husband his FIFO (fly in fly out) and its changed so he actually is coming home every other week thankfully, before this he would come home once every 2 months. I know I shouldn’t get worked up but when I see people talk about their husband being away for 1 night and how hard it is, just think of us. We go weeks and weeks without that extra pair of hands and eyes. To those 24/7 single mums my hat is off to you. Raising a child and working (especially when she doesnt sleep at day care) is a juggling act with too many balls.
