Just have a chill day. put in a nice movie for your daughter or let her do something quite. take care of your son when he is hungry or needs a diaper change and let him play on the floor. lay down beside him but try not to fall asleep!! When you put them down for a nap just nap with them. Get some nice hot tea or whatever...stay in your pjs, dont worry about cleaning just relax and your husband will be home soon to help and you will be alright!! one minute at a time!

would you like to exchange numbers to aid in these times- I face the same issues. I have 5 children from 15 to 4 and it can be insane at times for sure.

You will be right, just take it slow and don't try to do too much in one day.

Pop a DVD in for your DD pop you bub into his rocker or bassinet etc, and you nap on the couch while the DVD is playing.

Sorry. Hope you've gotten it under control or Daddy is home. I've been having some of those days lately too. My 8mth old keeps waking up at 2am and wanting to play.
