I need some unbaised, honest opinions.
My oldest son is 11.
Middle son is 9.
Youngest daughter is 2.
Life with three kids has me at a maximum mental and physical stress 99% of the time.
With out a novella worth of information I was in the best shape of my life prior to getting pregnat with our third.
I experienced a host of physical complications one of which is a 2nd degree slippage of one of the disks in my back.
The only thing I can do for stress and managing the constant pain in my back is exercise.
My youngest daughter likes to sleep with her older brothers and sleeps solid through the night until we wake them between 6:30 and 7 AM.
I have considered the option of leaving the 3 kiddos at home asleep from 5AM-6AM while I go to my local gym which is less than 1/4 of a mile from my house with a phone on speed dial set with a specific ring tone....I think I could literally run home in less time than it would take to drive...well wait...maybe I used to be able to make that claim : ). Put it this way, it is close you do not get out of 2nd gear....
Is this totally crazy and irresponsible of me to even consider? To have the oldest call me as soon as baby wakes up? (Which by the way when she does wake up she is happy as a clam to just hang with her brothers.)
I am starting to get very depressed at my physical state of back pain all the time and always seem to be at the short end of the fuse because I do nothing for myself all day and need a physical release that does not involve carting the baby along with me....
I just need some non judgemental opinions and this is the best place I know to find them.
With grace along this path,
