I have 2 kids a 2 yr old and a 6 month old. My boyfriend and I have been together for 4 yrs, but living together for almost 1 yr. I guess they really do mean it when they say it all changes once you live together. I'm so exhausted from the kids, and I understand he works 9 hrs 5 days a week. But I'm a full time mom 24 hrs 7 days a week. And its hard to take care of both kids, the house, and my boyfriends needs. My house is always a disaster. I have a cleaning schedule, but I feel like I need to put everything into one day every day in the week. Because once I clean something it becomes dirty again within a day or two. There's always clothes lying around the house and dishes for me to do. I feel like I have a panic attack once every day. My son is an early riser and my daughter is a late sleeper and I've tried getting them to sleep at the same time but it doesn't work. So I get 3-4 hrs everyday, and on the weekends my boyfriend tries to let me take a nap,but he can never control the kids. We've also talked about him helping me around the house, but that only last a few days. I dont know how much more I can take before I have a giant meltdown. Do your husbands/boyfriend help you? How do you guys control what goes on in the house? What should I do...?
