Dad life vs Work Life
1 month ago · · parenting, · Explicit
So I became a dad about 10 months ago. I had two weeks off and then back to work. Its been difficult feeling like I'm missing out on seeing my daughter grow up. But now my wife returns to work at the start of September and she is dreading it. Saying she can't think about it for too long because it will make her sad. I get this because I also feel sad being away from her. But with the cost of living going up right now, we don't really have a choice but return to work. We could probably scrape by - but we wouldn't be able to save for holidays, a new car, a new house in the future etc. I feel like I'm the bad guy for suggesting that we can't live off one wage. I would be extremely jealous she gets to spend all her time with out daughter and I'm working my ass off for us to live. So yeah... feeling shit. I don't know what to say without being the bad guy.
