Hi girls,

I am new to circle of mums and I am reaching out as I am struggling!!

We have 2 boys aged 8 and 4, a business and I am studying part time. Cooper is home and Jaydon is at school. Our boys are very loud, energetic and really don't like to slow down.

Lately I have felt I am drowning..I constantly have anxiety and the noise of the boys is driving me CRAZY!! I can't seem to find that quiet space in my brain and when I catch up on the running of the house the boys just go nuts and I am back to square one!! I am finding it impossible to get any study or bookkeeping done because I can't focus and I am constantly cleaning, washing etc.

My husband works long hours with our business so I don't like to rely on him to get things done.

Has anyone else had these feelings and how do you cope? I would appreciate any suggestions and guidance.

Thank you

Kind regards,

im in the same boat. my boyfriend works a lot and i go to school full time. i have 4 year old twins who are also jumping around or climbing, etc. You have to make a strict schedule for them. Bed time at a certain time and everything else including cooking, laundry and cleaning up. I put my boys to bed at 8 weekends around 10. My dad takes them once in a while so that helps. Also the kids can help too even though they are young. My kids clean their own room, help sort laundry and even put some clothes away after laundry is done. I have to mostly do everything but this seems to work for me. Some days are harder than others.
