My situation: 24 yrs old, Mother of 2 girls ages 2 yrs & 6 mos old, Full-Time Student & SAHM. Hubby works in another state & comes home only on weekends. Can't afford a sitter/daycare, etc. Family members don't want to help cuz they think the baby is handful, OK time to vent...
Hi there, I am the youngest of a family of 5 & became a mother at a young age. I always feel like everyone is telling me how I should live my life & what I should be doing. Older sisters & parents asked me to move back to AZ to be near family & so they can spend time with my girls, Hubby & I decided this would be great as to have a permanent home to raise our girls. During this time my family hinted the idea that this would be a great opportunity for me to finish my school online & they would help of course. However this is not what happened. I fell down some steps, broke my foot & now in a cast.... STILL MORE TO COME...

Okay, I am 25 years old, I have 3 kids, one more on the way, my hubby is only home one day a week. I also take care of my physically disabled mother and father at the same time, AND started online classes in February. Trust me, I think I can relate to your situation. First, you need to make a schedule of your day. Have specific times to eat, play, teach, etc. Try to keep the baby on schedule, but if she is like my kids, we never really had much of a schedule. Also, put study time and school time in that schedule. While your kids are watching tv, or doing a craft, that is when you should get some school time in. I know you are tired, but if you put your girls in bed by 7, then you can get some school work done while they are sleeping and be in bed by 8 or 9. You can get chored done while kids are awake. Have them help out. The 2 year old is old enough to be able to help a little bit. continued...
