I am a stay at home mom. My kids are 4, 2 and 9 months. Im never alone. Even when im in the shower the kids are banging on the door or yelling in to me. Ive been staying up late at night just for some quiet time but it makes me so tired in the mornings when the kids get me up. Im starting to become a bit stressed and find myself short fused with the kids. Any ideas on a way to relieve stress? Id like to enjoy watching the kids play instead of stressing from the noise once again. thanks for your time and any comments. =)

How about play dates with other kids? Maybe you can set up a time when you can alternate between houses? Why not a play group? you can get several moms involved.. What about the dad? Can he handle the kids long enoough for you to have maybe 30 minutes to yourself once a day?

The only other idea I can think of is an earlier bed time for the kids.. Or what about naptime? Anyway you can get all 3 to nape at the same time?
