i don't see how this could be impossible. If she is working in home health or private duty, it could happen. I work at a small building and unless we lock everything up, including our cars, it has happened.
I've done it 5 times now...5 kids.
I only work part time and 8 hour shifts so it isn't that bad (every other weekend and PRN). Is your husband afraid of the baby or are you afraid of what he will/ won't do? My hubby had it rough with some of the babies (they all nursed and some took bottles better than others)
Take a deep breath and think about this...He is their dad. Dads are able to do everything (except the nursing part) that moms can do. Dads should do this too. The kids will be fine and will grow to love the "Dad Time" . What made me feel better was to everything read or laid out for him...bottles were lined up on the counter, clothes were laid out and meals were just about ready for him to make for the other kids.
Keep up the PRN or perdiem job...you need this adult time and time to just be a nurse and not a mommy and the extra $$$ is nice too.
I went thru that period where I didn't want to be away from the kids/ babies then I went thru the period where I just want to run out of the house to work..now I'm at the stage where it is just inconvient to work. LOL. 5 kids with the youngest at 1 yr and the oldest at 10....so many activities and so little time~
ohh..its also nice for Dad to be able to see what Mom is going thru at home with the kids.
Such a sad story. Local to me too.
If someone is able to recognize the parents are addicts, then they should not be taking care of the kids. Get them out.
