Ask Amy: Woman being ‘ghosted’ goes back for more
Dear Tired: You and your wife need to acknowledge that the dynamic in your household has changed.
In my house, we tackled a similar issue by assigning days of the week where each spouse is responsible for providing dinner. When it’s your day — you handle it.
I also hired a bi-weekly cleaner. Smartest move I ever made.
Dear Amy: “K” described her very difficult pregnancy and wondered about having a baby shower. You suggested that she should have one quickly.
I disagree. I had a similar experience, and we enjoyed our shower after the baby was born (early) and in the NICU. I was much less fearful and distracted, and was able to experience the joy of receiving congratulations and gifts.

Dear Been There: Several women responded with this advice — along with the hope that things turn out well for “K” and her baby.
