I have been at home for a while now with my two sons, The eldest starts school in September. I feel I have got to the point where I am going crazy!! I don't go out much and we have just moved too. I seem to be crying one minute, and shouting the next. I wonder what my children think of me and worry that they might be taking it all in. i do not work anymore, and my career is years behind me. I want to work but find it hard to fit it in around the little ones. I feel like a robot that basically waits on my children all day and that's it. The days are endless and exhausting. Any tips or advice would be helpful please...

I stayed at home for 2 years, and almost went insane. I started taking online courses, which helped, and then I got the bright idea to take on a full-time job. (Wish i'd never done that now, but oh well). A part-time job may be up your alley, if you want to put your youngest in daycare. Also, it's always always good to get a babysitter and have a day just for you. I do this once a month or maybe every other month. I go to the spa and get a massage, or I go get a pedicure, or I just wander around town by myself. It's an extra expense, but I save up for it so that I'll have something to look forward to. Also, you may want to try taking the kids to an outdoor park, or even one of those indoor places with the blow up jump machines. My son loves that, and it's an enclosed area so I can sit and relax while he plays.
