i have 2month old twins and a 3yr old. im a stay at home mom at the age of 21. and i cant seem to see the bright side of things. when one is crying the other starts then they are noth rying and wont stop. ill feed themc burp, change them, hold them. and they wont stop crying. then ill go downstairs to see my 3yr old playing with handsoap all over the bathroom and toys scattered all over the livingroom and kitchen. and my husband comes home 5maybe 6 in the evening. hes military so i had to move away from my family. so i dont have family or friends near me. at times i feel like the mother in mommy dearest movie. i get so angry easily and then ill feel so guilty if i scream at my daughter. its just an overwhelming feeling. what can i do. my husband dosnt help at those 12am 3am cries. ive had days when babies will cry from 11pm to 6am. just crying back and forth from each of them. im tired and dont know what to do. i try talking to my husband but it ended up with him sleeping on the couch. any advice please

Kick your husband in the shins!! OK, so not really cuz that won't help, but oh my goodness! You NEED help. Let him know that if he doesn't start helping you out some then you will be forced to hire someone to help out. You have a 3 year old (very difficult creatures in themselves) and TWO newborns! Even a saint would lose her mind if she had to do it all alone.

I'm sorry! I wish I had something more helpful, but words on a screen will not solve this problem. He needs to step up and help you out here.
