Moms of toddlers and newborns
Hi there my fellow mama bears..... I am new here and I hope to meet lots of moms. I tell you, I am feeling so overwhelmed and out of control of my own life right now... I am a work at home mom, my LG is 2 and a half years old and my son was born 6 weeks ago last Friday. I have had to start working again due to financial stress. My daughter goes to daycare during the day and my mother in law helps with my little man while I work until he is old enough to go to daycare. I work all day and then evening comes and I want to crawl into a hole and hide away. My husband is wonderful, he helps me as much as he can. However, he finishes work and we leave immediately to fetch the kids, we come home have dinner if its ready, then may daughter has her bath and hubby looks after baby while I get my daughter sorted. Then she is allowed to watch a little tv before bed time. She goes to sleep between 7 and 8, it depends on how stimulated she is from her day at school, I do my routine with her and then come through and get my little man finished up....... by the time im done with that its 9pm..... then somehow I need to bath, oh and notice that I haven't mentioned that I have eaten, i sort them all out first.... then by the time im done its too late and not hungry so I dont eat....... I am trying to gain some sort of control of my life getting used to having 2 kiddies in the house, and I know I will get there, especially once my son has a routine, but in the meantime, is there any advice that any of you can give me to help the transition a little easier? So that I don't feel so out of control of my life? Thank you in advance mamas, I appreciate any advice.
Oh and I forgot to mention that at the same time that all this is happening... we are trying to potty train my daughter.... lol sigh
