So both my DH and I work full-time with pretty demanding/stressful jobs. We have a 5.5 y/o boy and 2.5 y/o girl. It's seems lately I'm really struggling with keeping my sanity. I feel like I am running a never ending marathon from the minute I wake till I go to bed. Mornings are crazy getting everyone ready and out the door. Usually involves some crying/whinning from one or both of the kids. Then when I leave work at 5 to pickup my daughter from daycare it starts all over again. Get home and I try to throw something together for dinner, kids are hanging on my legs wanting me to play with them. DH is trying to clean up around the house. Then there's homework and laundry too. By the time my daughter falls asleep I'm exhausted and go to bed and it's only 8:30!! My DH will then put our son to bed. Weekends are always crazy too with ballet, swim lessons, chores, cleaning. I just feel tired all the time!! Plus my DD is going through the lovely terrible 2's and has been just a terror so that doesnt help!
How are you other mommy's surviving? I must say coming to the office is my only break where I can actually sit and breathe. I can't even imagine being a stay-at-home mommy! Any advice is appreciated.
