    couldn't read and not offer some

    Can you just let them run around the back garden while you sit on the step and supervise from a distance? I really struggle with two, I take my hat off to you with three...

    Can you completely child safe one room and just put them in there for 30mins? it won't kill them... sometimes that's what I had to do with O and J.. just lock off the loungeroom, remove everything except pillows and beanbags, put a Wiggles DVD on and just walk away for 15mins.

    Do you have friends nearby that can come over with their kids? Do the trips play better with other children there?

    I won't suggest taking them out, coz that's just crazy and I'm getting anxious just thinking about taking 3 almost 3yr olds out...

    will they play with water? Can you just lock the house up, pack a picnic and just stay in the yard with water play and bubbles and balls?

    Anything to make it easier just to get through these hours till DH gets home.
    They're watching telletubies with a massive bowl of chips. Most they cam do is push the tv & Christmas tree over.

    I was trying to get to the park when poop hit the fan.

    So do YOU feel the need to get out? If you are exhausted and they want to be home, there is no harm in putting on the TV, pulling out a few toys and letting them go for it while you lie on the couch or sit in the next room. I only have two but I have PND also and we spend a lot of days like that. I feel terribly guilty for not being more in control but i figure it won't be this hard forever and so I just do what i need to do to get through the day. to you

    Sorry I had to have a giggle at your "out numbered" comment. . . .
    Some days I just don't have enough arms for two kids, not even twins, well done or managing your 3!
    We have a trampoline in our lounge room, one with the sides on it. People think we're weird when they come to visit but some days I can only manage to get to the loo by putting DS in his "cage"....
    I miss home too, I took the kids to mum and dads over new year and DS had a ball running around the wide open space of the front yard and I could just sit and be on the verandah, bliss! Hopefully it happens for you REAL SOON!!!

    My aunt volunteers for the Red Cross and goes and helps mums who have multiples, helps in whatever way she can. Is this service available in your area?

    Yep our tv gets a good workout too. I couldn't manage without it. What time are you expecting your DH home? You just sound exhausted and at the end of your rope, you poor thing. At least its Friday. Will your DH be home on the weekend (i don't know what he does for a living). I have often been hanging out for DH to come home.

    I see the trips are 2.5 now, i know its not much help today but they are really getting to the age now where they will begin to entertain themselves, be able to carry things and start doing some stuff for themselves. You have got this far with them, and it will really start to get easier very soon. My dd2 is 3 in March and she has grown up an awful lot in the last 3 months, she is almost a pre-schooler now as opposed to a big baby/toddler.
