That's exactly what happens! It's so hard.

It is and then you have the people that say "enjoy this, you'll miss it" and I just thought "my God you must be on crack". I can honestly say I don't miss the disaster but now I barely see my 7 and 5 yr old...they're attached at the hip and play together day and night. Same with my 6 and 3 yr old although the little guy does still need me from time to time lol...I actually find myself bored now. And you're thinking "well good for you lady but that doesn't help me now, thats years from now for me"...lol

Quoting Juliette:" <blockquote><b>Quoting speaktruth2powr:</b>" Have you thought about finding a part time mother's helper,?"</blockquote> We can't afford anything like that."


My friend has 4 kids under 5 and she has someone come in 3 times a week from 11-3, she pays them minimum wage.



The helper cleans up, hangs out with the kids, cooks lunch for them, etc. while she sleeps and spends one-on-one time with the other kids.
