Moms with 3 or more kids..

Have you ever went thru a rough patch being a mom? i mean how do you deal with being stuck in the house all the time? i have 2 newborns as well as a 3 year old and i cannot go anywhere without assitance. my 3 yr old doesnt listen to me very well(very defiant)and 2 newborns do not fit in the shopping cart without not being able to get the things you need.not to mention putting in 3 carseats...sigh..how do you not get depressed?

  • Hang in there! Is there any way you could get some time to yourself and get refreshed once in a while?

  • Oh mama. You're at a hard phase of motherhood. It does get easier. Babies and toddlers are demanding physically and mentally. I used to get down too but remind yourself its only a short time they are completely dependent on you. Get help too! Only go to the store when someone can watch the kids, and take good care of yourself first

  • Don't be so hard on yourself. Your 3 yr old is probably just jealous of the babies because she doesn't get the time with you that she use to have. Just take it one day at a time, and try to spend some time with your oldest while the others take a nap.
