Hello. I have 5 children. My 7, 4, 2, 2 are boys. And our new baby girl is 4 months. My oldest is at school during the day and I am home with the other 4. We have the basics down as far as when they eat and nap. But I hate it when sometimes the day is over and I feel like I didn't get in enough alone time with my 4 yr old. Or that i forgot to practice the alphabet with my twins. Or that I forgot my daughters tummy time. Some days I just feel so drained from nursing my daughter on demand that we all just float around the house eating and watching television. I know, I know :o( but sometimes it's just like that. So I would love suggestions from any of you super organized moms (of which I am NOT) on how to fit my day around everyone and not fall out from exhaustion by 6pm. Oh yeah, my husband is around and jumps in with everything but he works swing and sleeps late and i really feel like this is something I need to figure out as the "mommy". So please help because i feel like a terrible mother when I stick them in front of Yo Gabba Gabba instead of reading to them because I am too tired. It's not fair to them. If I could just get it all in a day I would be okay or at least better. Thank you any suggestions will help.
