Oh Boy I
could have written your post.I have said those exact same words to hubby many times...."there must be something wrong with me!!"
I just cannot do it..I cannot keep up with my house.I was a disorganized person before kids and now I am just a mess.
I really really want to do it and I seem to work and work and never get anywhere!!
my house is really small....900 sq ft and I am tired all the time I work part time outside the home.My hubby is gone driving overnights twice a week.
My question to all of you is while you are cleaning and organizing what are your children doing.??? mine don't play well independantly.The little one is too little yet and is teething and spends most of the day clinging to my leg and crying if I don't hold her.If I hold her or sling her she wants to touch everything and screams if she doesn't get her way!! The 4 yr old wants me to play with her all the time.The only way out is the television which has been way overused lately and we have to shut it off for a while.I try to include them in the cleaning but that doesn't always work out.Naptime doesn't buy me much time.she sleeps about 1 1/2 hours but I nurse her down and when she wakes up after about 45 min I nurse her back to sleep again!! Sometimes I give up and nap with her.....
Most days I get so frustrated I give up and just hang out with them.I try to tell my hubby thats what AP is all about but he is tired of living in the mess.He helps out infrequently and when he does is very resentful he feels it is my job.He got spoiled the two years I was a SAHM....although I can't say it was a lot better then either but at least I only had one child.
I too feel I am borderline ADD but have no way of knowing.I have just always been this way.It didn't seem so bad when I was a smoker pre children.I guess that helped me focus.Now I am just overwhelmed all the time.
I am subscribing hoping for some good advice too!!
You are not alone Oceanbaby!!
