  • It's really hard, but it's doable. Just keep telling yourself about your goals and why you're juggling so many things and that you're trying to make the best for yourself and your baby. And remember, this level of stress is temporary. You'll get out of school eventually and your kids will get a little older and somehow, things will work out for you and you'll be so proud of yourself and happy that you made it through. You'll be so impressed with yourself in the end and realize just how much you can handle at one time and you'll be a stronger person for it.

  • Your going to get stressed out no matter what. I was doing the same thing. Going to school full time, part time job right after school and raising my daughter alone who was under one at the time and worrying about my husband who was deployed. It gets easier. You just need a perfect schedule and have some helps when you need a brake from the LO. GL I hope you find away to not stress so much!

  • Im a SAHM for that reason! I want my children to get a stress free me! I volunteer at the school, and cook, clean and spend time with the kids, it really is a more relaxing life...JMHO! I have # 5 on the way, so it's not like I am saying this with 1!

  • I know how you feel. The only thing I can say is do what you can when you can. I get the most school work done when my daughter takes her nap in the afternoon and then again after her and my son go to bed at night. I do laundry as needed and if it has to sit in the basket or dryer so I can get a few extra pages of schoolwork done, so be it. I wash and dry dishes right after supper so it's done and I have the evening to do what little things didn't get done during the day. Hang in there, you really can do it.
