House Work

Help!! I need advice on getting my housework done. I have an 1rt1 yr old, 6 yr old 20 month old, and a 5 month old. I have been a sahm since 02 and MOST of the time i love it. But.... since I have had my last one it has been very hard. I am nursing my youngest and he think he needs to eat ALL the time. My 20 month old thinks he needs to get into everything and touch everything. So my house work has really taken a backseat. When both boys are asleep i try to get as much done as I can, but as soon as one wakes up I tend to him. Then when the other wakes up I am either nursing or chasing, so I have to stop my work and be mommy. When I am sitting down nursing, my 20 month old decides to really go exploring and gets into even more stuff, so I set down my 5 month old which makes him scream, then i go to get my 20 month old out of whatever he is messing up and then go back to nursing. I am so frazzled and my house is in shambles. HELP

Try and get a half day maid to help with the cleaning in the mornings. You're then more relaxed with the kids. Kids can feel it when mommy is uptight and frtustrated

Don't sweat the small stuff. Get done what you can and let the rest go. You will have plenty of time one day to get the house clean, but you won't have babies forever. Enjoy them and everything else will work out.
