Tired !

I am  mother of two toddlers too, I am so exhausted. My husband arrives so late that he can´t help me with the house nor the kids. I sometimes feel so stressed that I think I am not doing them any good. I don´t know how to deal with my kids and the house, at the same time, any advice?

Make your husband hire a mothers helper ! i love being a nanny mothers have told me that the second i walk in the door its like they've seen an angel haha i like taking care of people im not a mother yet but i can relate to your stress and pain kids and be so pushy and needy haha

Thank you very much for your advice! I will definithly invest in baby gates. I will designate a room for my kids, instead of them using the whole house as a playground. This way I can clean faster, I really appreciate your help!

I am a mother of two toddlers as well 2 and 4. My husband works from 8 in the morning until 5. Some days he doesn't get home until almost 6:30 and the kids go to bed by 7 or 7:30. It's rough because i'm not use to being a stay at home mom, but i manage. My advice to you is this invest in BABY GATES! I have a split level house so the basement is pretty much the kids area full of toys and a tv for them. During the day i let them go down stairs and i'll put the gate up so that way i know they are in one area and i can get my cleaning done and what not...Now i'm not saying leave them down there all day lol, but it's a big help to me because i can juggle meals and cleaning through out the day, and know that i don't have to worry about my kids getting under foot.
