I haven't had a break from my toddler for 6 weeks. I work full-time, and my husband works so much he only comes home to sleep. When I come home my kid won't leave me alone for 5 minutes. My house is destroyed because as soon as I get one room clean he's behind me pulling everything out again. As we speak he is crawling over my arms as I'm typing. I'm turning into a horrible mom where all I want to do it yell and keep asking him if he wants another nap. I'm 23 weeks pregnant and feel so stressed I'm going to throw up. I just want a minute of peace. My closest baby sitter is 3 hours away. I know single moms and army moms deal with this all the time. I'm ready for a breakdown....can you tell me to suck it up or tell me that you hit breakdowns too? I'm going under anon because I'm feeling like such a baby.

I don't know. My daughter is a single mom of a 5 and 2 year old. She is absolutely exhausted most of the time. I would tell you not to worry about what your house looks like right now. At some point, you will find time to clean and enjoy your time again. Right now, however, your focus is on raising those children. If I were you, though, I would make sure that your husband eventually finds time to help. I mean, he found time to make the children, didn't he?!
