I'm married to the love of my life, Joey.
We had a whirlwind romance...we met in June of 99', engaged in August of 99' and married in October of 99'. Crazy? Maybe, but when you find love and you know it...you lock it in!
We have 3 children who are my life! Taylor is 18, Luke just turned 9 and our lady killer is 7 year old Hayden.
The hubby or the kids?
To me, personally, it's about even. They stress me out in totally different ways. I feel TOTALLY responsible for the kids. If one of them doesn't do homework, it's my fault or I feel like a bad parent (don't you?).
If my husband doesn't clean up after himself or do what think he should be doing I get stressed because I'm ticked off. Sound like you or am I alone? Here is the skinny:
A survey of over 7,000 moms by The Today Show revealed
that the average mother rates her daily stress level as an eight and a half out of 10. That's a lot of stress every day.
Unfortunately for most of these women, help does not come from dad. In fact, 46% of moms say their husbands are a higher source of stress than their children. Three-quarters of moms with partners say they do most of the parenting and household duties, and one in five moms says not having enough help from their spouse is a major source of daily stress.
And then there's the fact that the majority of women surveyed claimed having a husband was more like having another child rather than an equal partner!
