I just make sure my shirt's pulled down, or I'll layer a t-shirt w/a button-front shirt.
DH & I would like to pack our five-month old in the Ergo and go for a ride on our trikes on smooth pavement. I've researched the issue and found that she won't be at risk for head/neck injuries due to slumping or a helmet too heavy for her little neck. The trikes are VERY stable - anything that would overturn one would be pretty violent (what I'm saying is that if you crash & flip this bike, you're probably getting hurt no matter what age you are and wherever you're...

Hugs. I know how heartbreaking it is to have those feelings.
I use 18mo socks on our 4 month old - the ones her sister just outgrew. The don't look too goofy & never fall off.
Our oldest could do it when she was smaller, maybe around 18 months. I'd put a kleenex to her nose & ask her to blow & she would just do it. Now that she's almost 29 months, she can't do it anymore, lol.
Oh, and it's helped me tons to scedule both our meals & our days, even if we don't always stick to the schedule. I'll schedule a week out for activities and have gotten to where I can schedule two weeks for meals (I just don't have the energy or interest to go beyond that). The daily schedule is something like: Monday - play & do laundry; Tuesday - go to Playroom; Wednesday - go grocery shopping; Thursday - play & laundry; Friday - free day. Nothing big, but it helps a lot.
I can't speak to the homeschooling stuff, but hopefully I can help w/some of your other needs. Forgive me if this is too simplistic: 1. Don't try to be perfect. 2. Learn how to prioritize - Ask what has to be done NOW, then what has to be done TODAY, then this week. Make a list. Mine's on a greaseboard I can see from anywhere in the kitchen/living room. That way you won't forget what you thought was important when you had a clear head (if you ever get to have one...
Didn't lose it either time unless I actively watched what I ate & tried to exercise at least 30 minutes a day. So, no bf-caused free ride to weight loss for me, lol.
