So every morning i am waking up at 7am(except on weekends) even after i have to wake up and feed my almost 2month old son at 1am and 5am.
At 7am- i am in shower, making kids breakfast by 7:18am, checking on 5.5year old ds to make sure he is getting dressed for school, assist my year old on getting dressed. While kids eat i let the dog out, get 2month old dressed. Once 7:40am hits i am letting dog in, putting jackets on, getting 2month old in his carseat. By 7:45am we are in the van and head the block to school and get there by 7:50am and school starts at 8am.
By 8am- i need to feed 2month old( basically when i and 3 year old just walk in door). Finally 8:30am comes and i now can eat my yogurt, and make coffee.
9am- 2month old needs nap( morning nap), 3year old needs snack. And after 9:30am and i have started my laundry, loaded first set of dishes i can relax.
10am- 2month old wake up time, and play time.
11am- i start lunch and change my laundry, unload dishes.
12pm- feed baby, potty break for 3year old
12:30- nap time, and i finish my chores and then i chill on couch watching my show, and will do this until i head to pick up my 5.5year old and a friends son at 3:15pm
3:30pm- feed baby, help with my friends sons homework.
4:30 start dinner
5pm- we are eating
5:30pm- i am cleaning up after dinner, starting homework with my 5.5year old, puttibg clothes away, getting jammies together for each kid and all this takes me til 6pm.
6pm- start 3year olds bath, feed baby, finish homework with 5.5year old.
6:30pm- finish bath on 3year old, start shower on 5.5year old.
7pm- quick snack, brush teeth, and cartoon time for 3year old and 5 year old as well as get baby in jammies.
7:15pm- read to baby
7:30pm- read to older boys
7:45pm- lights out and i get to relax until 8:30 when baby eats again. And after he finishes i need to feed animal( if hubby has not) brush my teeth, and get ready for bed.
Now dh gets home at 2:30( soon will changevas he starts a new job where he will work 7-4, and i will then have to bring 3year old and baby with me to pick up older ds), so he has no reason to help even when i ask, but he doesnt.
So tonight i told dh look i tried to do everything on my own but i cant, so i need u to help. He completly ignored me.
And can i add i have oldest ds swim lessons on saturdays and middle ds swim lessons on weds nights, and bath baby on weds nights and sunday nights. Plus have my normal clean day which takes me all day( i do it in spurts).
So my mornings and after dinners are so stressful, i tend to snap at the smallest whine or thing.
