I am week two into being a full time SAHM to a 4 year old and a 7 month old. I had to pull my 4 year old out of preschool to be able to afford to stay home. I knew staying home was not easy but I just can't figure out how to juggle it all. I feel more stressed and more running around now. I can't figure out how to get my 7 month old to nap while i have a 4 year old who needs attention and needs to do things. All the things I want to take him to happen when the baby should be napping. And when we stay home and I try to get the baby to nap the 4 year old just won't let it happen. I know we are all just still adjusting. just thought I would ask - it seems I am having the most troubles with balancing the needs of both kids. I worry that the 4 year old isn't getting enough play time and outside time because I have the baby too. I am just feeling down tonight like I did the wrong thing and the 4 year old is bored now and not getting outside enough to play. It is SO cold out and I don't know what to do with the baby when he wants me to go sledding or build snowmen or something. how do you do it all?
