I have a 2 year old dd and then I keep my 6 month old niece during the day and don't get home from my folks til between 7:30 and 8 at night. So I have to figure out how to get the 6 month old to play some and let me put her down because my house looks like it was hit by a tornado. I doesn't matter if I am trying to do things and she is sitting right beside me while I do it, if I am not holding her it is not good enough. The child won't nap when she is here other than for 10-15 minutes at a time, dd won't nap when the 6 month old is here because she fusses and wakes the 6 month old and it drives me crazy so I am giving up and she can nap on the days it is just her and mommy and on the other days I get to deal with a crabby wonder in the evenings.
I have to be able to wash, dry and put away laundry, I have to be able to put toys and vacuum and pick up in general. I can't live like this anymore.
Any suggestions? She is just MAD, but I can't handle listening to her cry or fuss so I have to hold her. But I am 22 weeks pregnant and I can't carry her all the time as my hip keeps going out of place as it is and I am too tired all the time when I don't have her anyways. I have to figure it out, so how do YOU do it??
