I have a 23 month old and a 9 month old. I love them and love being a SAHM. I think I would really loose it if I had to work plus run a home. But days like this, which are a lot anymore, when my oldest is screaching within minutes of waking, because he can't have his juice in a bottle. Then when they are both screaming....I just want to smash something. I take anxiety meds, but let's face it, no amount of drugs is going to take all the stress away. My hubby is currently home for a stretch of time, but that isn't helping, the oldest is still screaching. I give him attention, and he still does it, when something doesn't go his way. I know, it's normal. I have a degree dealing with development and early childhood. But today is one of those days. And my hubby constantly is talking about having a third. I am not sure my nerves will handle another one. Any suggestions on how to cope with just the day to day stuff??...
You just kind of take things day by day, or minute by minute depending on the situation. Everyone has days like that. I'm a SAHM to 5. They are 10, almost 9, almost 8, 4 and 9 days old. My oldest has a behavior problem that takes up 90% of my time...or it did until the baby came and now he takes up most of my time. I just spent the last 3 months alone with them while my husband worked in another state so I was basically a single mother and had no car so I was stuck at home the whole time while very, very pregnant. There were days I didn't think I could make it through to bed time and other days when things went smoothly. I just took some days minute by minute and locked myself in my room when I needed a break.
