Yep not all hubbies help out at home! Sad isn't it? I'm blessed my hubby does, but I grew up with my mum raising three of us on her own without much help from dad. Dad's just there for fun and games.
Last week at church there was a family with 8 children. They look like they're doing it on their own....I mean, with 8 children how can you possibly afford help when help is so expensive?? Yet their children are so well dressed and well behaved like little angels. On other Aussie parenting forums I visit there's quite a lot of stay at home mum with 4-8 children doing it on their own too. It is possible...I guess some things need to be sacrificed, like a spotless house and some un-ironed clothes.
Also on a UK documentary I recently watched there was a mum with no arms and legs but she is so capable it is amazing!! I hope these people will continue to inspire us mothers
