Double the trouble

I am a 24 year old mom of 2 toddlers a 3 year old and a 4 year old my husband works night shifts so im usually with my kids day and night, most of the time it feels like its just me and my 2 boys which drive me crazy all day sometimes its very hard to keep up with both of them since they are always up and down... i usually stay at home with them because its so hard to go out with them specially going out to the market. so i was just wondering how do other moms like me do it to keep their cool and deal with everyone's drama about how u raise ur kids?

I totally understand what you are dealing with. Unfortunately if your husband is anything like mine they just don't get it. I don't really like leaving with my girls either. I survive with a schedule, my girls are in bed PROMPTLY at 7pm. I do not see them again until around 8 in the AM. This was not an overnight thing; I started this the day they were born. This is how I have my mommy time, and on the weekends my mommy and daddy time. It makes for an early morning BUT I am tired no matter what, on 6 hrs or 9 hrs of sleep. If I have a lot to do I wait until they are sleeping and then I don't get stressed out or frustrated. This may or may not work for you but tweak it a little, figure out what fits you, and don't let a bad day throw off your entire week. After all, we all have bad days, even the kids. How we handle those bad days is a reflection of who we are. I talk about this topic and much more on my blog Http://
I am always up for a suggested topic so if you have any other questions feel free to submit them, I try my best to answer all questions in a timely manner.

Good luck and keep me posted on how you are doing with the boys!
