I am really just looking for some support, as well as advice on how you manage to do everything. I have 3 boys - 5 years, almost 4 years and 2 years, and a 10 month old daughter. Some days I just feel like I'm going insane and can't manage to get anything done!

Getting into a routine will be your new best friend! If they get use to doing things at a certain time each day, they'll be much easier to handle. Make sure you factor in "quiet time" for all of them at the same time(yes that's possible), they may not all sleep but at least you'll get a period of time to relax in the middle of the day. Also, teach them to help you out. Your 4 & 5 year olds can help fold laundry or collecting laundry. All 3 of them can help you pick up around the house. Picking one day per week to cook the meals for the entire week(or 2 weeks) might help too. You can freeze almost anything. Make sure you get some time to yourself after hubby is home and the 2 of you get time to be together for "date night" or something. This will help keep you sane!! Good luck.

Thanks so much for the tips! I love the idea of making all the dinners on one night. That would save so much time and frustration when I don't know what to make.
