2 steps forward and one step back- my 3 year old and terrible two's

I feel like the terrible twos arrived at 1 1/2 years with my son when the birth of my twins came, and he does seem to get better when my husband and I are both home but my husband works full time and late nights so he is only home on the weekend really. When the week comes around my hand are full with the three of them and I feel like my three year old is a teenager and the battle of wills never ends. When will this be over? I have tried everything...time out, taking toys away, getting eye level and talking to him.

Look at it through his eyes, he was the one that got all the attention before the twins came along, now he has 2 more to compete with.
Yes it's different when Dad is home because he can have the attention of 1 of you. Maybe when he plays up let him know that as soon as the babies are asleep/happy then you will play with him. He doesn't care what type of attention he gets at the moment so that's why he plays up, he gets immediate attention that way.
