Man oh man im just exhausted i love being a sahm but my husband was gone for two weeks last month and i was by myself that time with three kids and one of them was only a month old and since hes been back i havnt had a chance to just have a day to myslef and im starting to feel a little overwhelmed and trying not to lose my patience! My middle is going through a mommy stage especially since shes not the baby anymore so thats really been the hardest shes always trying to climb on me and be near me every second even when i have the baby which is hard and then her older brother messes with her even though shes extra sensitive right now!! Oy vey i think this weekend calls for me time lol

I know exactly how you feel. It's so important for you to get that "me" time, even if its just out to the store or a 15 minute bubble bath. I am also a SAHM and my husband doesn't get it. I feel like I never get a break. I love my kids more than anything, but that alone time is important, especially to keep your sanity.

hugs  You're right, it sounds like you need some serious "me" time, a girls' night out or a date with your hubby without the kiddos.  Start your planning now!

I know exactly how you feel!

This is the first week I've been solo without my husband here, and dealing with these 4 lil monsters non stop is exhausting.

I've been a stay at home mom for 8 years and it is really starting to tear me apart. I have zero friends or family so I'm always stuck in this house...it really sucks. I have lots going on right now too, which isn't helping to lift my spirits at all.. :/

I hope you get some alone time!!

Exactly and i feel so bad when i lose my patience at something i should not be losing my patience to..and i have very few friends who understand and the ones i do im not close to because were too different ...and i have family who had a baby two weeks after i had my youngest  so i was excited cause they moved back to fl and i was like yay i missed them and i thought our kids would grow up together and acting like an immature jerk and is refusing to spend anytime of the holidays with us because his baby hasnt been vaccinated yet and he doesnt want them around my kids until he is but hes been going around his fiances family so hes being two sided!! Grrrrr *smoke coming out of my ears* lol

I know how you feel.  I hope you can get some "me" time soon, although lately I think that "me" time is overrated.

I have soooo been in your shoes. Just keep reminding yourself that's it's not forever even though it seems like it. I would keep telling myself to remember how fast they grow up and someday I'll be wishing they were little again. I was right! In the meantime, I hope you can hang in there and get a little rest here and there!feel better
