The reason for this post is for some encouragement from other moms going through the same or similar thing. My oldest is going to be 3 next week my second will be two next month and I just had my third 2 weeks ago. I feel like I'm going crazy at times. Both my son and daughter have speech delays and are currently receiving speech therapy 2 times a week. They are developing normally and have no other disability other than their speech. However, I feel overwhelmed at times and need to find a way to deal with tantrums, meltdowns and crying babies. My oldest is at that age whe he likes to test the waters and test me! He knows he's doing something wrong and knows he'll get in trouble but does it anyway. I feel like I'm doing something wrong because it seems as though he doesn't listen and doesn't care what I say. My middle child is laid back and tends to imitate her brother and trys to act out at times but Usually is well behaved. I'm having a hard time dealing with the everyday things like spending individual time with each. Although I have a wonderful husband who helps out best he can he works and I have to deal with cleaning, washing, cooking, taking care of kids. I know other women have gone through the but wondering if you have ny suggestions on fun things to do that aren't expensive and things that are age appropriate for my soon to be 3 yr old & 2 yr old. Please send any encouraging words or thoughts as I feel alone at times.
