Hi mummies...wonder how to maintain a r'ship if dear husband is working a different timing..
different off days...
any mummies n daddies ???
how you try to accommodate time together??
My husband works shift job for about 10 yrs , he rotate 3 shifts, usually 3 days off 1 day. He like it cos he finds that if he needs to run errands, or he needs to go checkup with me, he no need to take leave, I just need to ensure that day his shift dont crash with my medical apt.
In fact, becos he on shift, we spend more time together, cos we planned our outing days.
sunday die die is family day. whole day must be with family. no other activities like going out with friends, etc etc. if want to attend any events, whole family must go. i make sure it is strict and kick up a fuss if my hubby do not follow. hehe!!
My husband working on shift too. Work 2 days off 2 days. Before marriage I find it good cos we dont get to see each other everyday.
In this way, I can arrange timing with friends to meet up etc.
As for now, married with 2 kids, I still ok with the shift he in, but for kids, they r not so close to him, as somehow, he spend less time with them. So whenever he happen to off on weekend, that will be our family day.
Now that I not working, we try to plan ahead, so if we know that week kids dont have enrichment class, then will ask him to take leave (dear husband's leave need to apply one month in advance, cos on duty roster).
Try to grab whatever time you all have during his off days. You all can go out for dates on his off days during weekdays after your work instead of the usual weekend which are so crowded wherever you go. During weekend, you can have your own space and private time, meet your friends and parents.
