Hello!

we have 2 kids, a 2yr old and a 8 week old who we love to bits. My OH has been doing fifo for nearly a yr now. I love him to bits but when hes home man it drives me nuts. its like he makes things 10x harder. he works long hours when hes away so i let him have a sleep in the first couple days but then when it comes to my turn to sleep in he “forgets” or doesnt wake up. its hard running a house with 2 kids and doing all the other things as well as food shopping, and playgroups etc.
Any other fifo mums in the same boat? sorry for the half whinge but it made me feel better lol.

  • You need to talk with your husband and work out a plan. If he is not following, again talk to him and see why not.

  • At least your feeling better. Nothing like a good whinge to get things off your chest. I’m not in your situation, I have survived unemployment, together all the time. It was very similar to what you’re exoeriencing

  • I think in general they don’t realise how hard it is – swap for a day and soon he will appreciate all of the work you do
