How do you average out and be the best that you can be by being a mom to a toddler and a newborn, go to work full time, and be a student part time with no help?

You just have to be really good at organisation skills. You also have to rope in family whether they want to help or not. The father of these children should help out as well. Your only study time is at night after the toddler has gone to bed and the only time you have with your toddler is from the time you pick him up from day care until bed time. All I can say is get the father to take the children one day at the weekend so that you can have time to think and catch up on study. It is not fair for you to have to do it all. Put your foot down and demand some help. All the advice I can say is the children do not stay small for long do not miss out on these years you will never get them back. Could you not take a study break for a year to sort out your children and then return to studying this would give you much needed time to enjoy your children and organise proper help to support you.

Gosh , thats really a tough one. All i can say is that God has chosen you to be the parent of these two beautiful kids and he sure must have confidence in you. No doubt its challenging - but i'm sure you will be an excellent mom and employee and student all in one. Good luck!
