That said......it has left little time for me or my marriage and my health, hobbies, etc. So while I do want to spend more time with her...I also hope to catch up on these other areas.

I'll let you in on a secret, MP. Every few weeks DH takes the day off and we have a day-long date while the kids are in school. Today, we drove out to a country town for shopping and lunch, and to see the autumn leaves along the way. Then we came back and stayed home for a while.

Days like this are not hard to arrange when only one person has to ask for time off!

Now you know why so many SAHMs of older kids are smiling (:
