I hear you! I have 5 boys 10, 9, 6, and twin 1 1/2 year olds. I thought that nothing could surprise me, but the twins I was not prepared for. My 10 and 9 year old were a little more than a year apart so I figured no big deal I can do this. No way!!! There are days I want to pull my eyes out because my brain is about to explode. It is non stop with the little ones. Some days I get absolutely nothing done. You feed, you clean, you cook, you feed again, you clean again, you feed again and it goes on for ever. My little ones get so dirty out here in the country that on days like today I had to bathe them twice. Once after lunch and than again after dinner (spaghetti). They are active little guys and it is not easy to keep them entertained.
Sorry to have gone on and on but to say it is a challenge is an understatement. Hang in there and good luck!! You are not alone.
