I have 3 kids, my son who is 3, daughter 2, and a 9 month old. I want to do more activities with my 2 older ones, but find it had having a infant. I just need ideas on how to make it work. I don't want my kids to miss out on learning or anything. I find it kind of difficult to take them places when I am by myself. Then I feel bad if I do bc trying to interact with them while trying to take care of the baby is hard. Then to top it off I have 2 opposite toddlers, seems like one goes one way while the other goes the other way. So I am stuck in the middle with the baby...saying which way to go. I guess I just need some ideas of how to deal.

Being in Alaska there is not A LOT of places to have indoor for the kids....I have tried to do the mommy playgroups but doesn't always work out.

Join a local Moms group for playdates etc, I found mine on meetup.com. Go to a indoor playground(kids are contained so you can tend to the baby when needed).

When I have my husband to help it is wonderful, but then he is the one that is being able to do things since I am still with baby.
