is anyone else about ready to sit on the floor and have a mental breakdown?? i am a mother of three beautiful children. they are all healthy, wonderful little kids. but they can drive me CRAZY!! i also work 40 hours a week as an operating room nurse. i feel like there is just not enough time in the day to get everything done! some days i just want to cry! Now that school is back in, we have homework, sports practice, dance practice. i feel so depressed sometimes that this is what life is and always will be. by the time homework and practice, dinner and baths are done, and all the kids are in bed, (not that they always stay there!), im exhausted and just want to go to bed myself! i dont even feel like holding a conversation with my husband, let alone have sex! poor guy! and i havent lost all my baby weight, and i just continue to pack it on! i go in to work at 645 am and get off at 530pm. i just dont know what to do! HELP!!!!!!!!!

I can relate. I work full time in the legal field. I have a 4 year old who just started a new school. I have a 2 year old. And I just had twin boys. Hang in there and remember it will be over soon.

i feel bad because my husband really does try and help out. the bad thing is is sometimes he works 60 + hours a week. sometimes i think its just me. maybe i just wasnt cut out to be a mom of three. seems like most of my friends have it together. im hoping they are just better at hiding their stress than i am!!!

Don't feel bad, I only have 1 and can completely relate! I try to take a step back, prioritize, leave the dishes in the sink if need be and give each task I am doing my full attention while I am doing it. I feel this allows me to shorten the time of each task, feel accomplished once it is completed and relieve some of the stress. I hope things get easier on you and that your husband pitches in. Maybe you need to talk to him, let him know what you just told us and ask if he can help a little more, his choice might surprise you and be even more than you would have asked (bath time is a good suggestion if he asks what to do would probably free up the most time for you.) explain to him that a happy wife means a happy life... Oh and more sex bc you won't be so damn stressed!!
