OUCH! How rough to be pretty much a full-time care-taker to children you've only been in the lives of for 8 months! That's gotta be hard on you, AND the kids...
During the summer I'm full-time care-taker to dss (he's 9, in school the rest of the time), and that was HARD, very hard for us both. Neither of us were ready for me to be the full-time care-taker.
If at all possible, I'd suggest asking your DH if there's anyway you can get some help during the day/week. It was easier for me AND dss, when we'd get breaks from each other here and there. Afterall, we're still building our relationship... It takes a while...
