I was thinking about
being home with 5 kids,having depression and just not knowing what is going on with me. And I think it would be very hard to pick myself back up.
I know alot of stay at home moms that just loose themselves. All they know is their children and they feel like they have lost touch with themselves.
I am not giving your wife an excuse for not helping you by any means,I am just trying to see it from her side.
So I do have a suggestion...what if you talked to her and told her that you think that her getting out of the house for a few hours a week would do her good. And that it would benefit you too because you really need her help.
Telling her that she can get some adult time. Hire a sitter and get her out of the house.
I know the finances are hard right now..but,is there anyway that you can get someone to watch the kids for a weekend? Take your wife on a trip somewhere..it doesn't have to be a huge trip,maybe just to the next town and get a hotel room,plan on seeing a movie or a concert,take her out to dinner ect.
I guess what I am saying is,let her feel like a woman that is being courted for a whole weekend. Instead of a mom that has so many things on her plate.
