Am I wrong?

At home I have an almost 2 year old son and two step-daughters to take care of, ages 3 and 5. While I'm the cook, maid, bath-giver, diaper changer and homework buddy I am also grieving over Eli. Is it so wrong of me to want help? I'm gonna be starting school in Janurary (fingers crossed) and I'm not superwoman. Yes I can do it all but it'd be easier if I didn't have to. I know that it is a little unorthodox but is it weird that I would ask the girls' mom to come stay and help as she's going to start school in the spring too? We are friends, although it seems weird for my husband, but she hasn't been able to see/spend time with the girls very much because of transportation and living arrangements. Advice?

  1. If you have a good relationship with her and there won't be any jealousy issues then I think that's an amazing idea. It's much better for the kids to be around the entire family and will give you a much needed break. People don't understand the toll grief takes on your body and mind. Even under normal circumstances you should not have to do it alone.
