I got through it by relaxing my standards and doing what I could when I could. I have 3, and once they get to around 15-18 months I think it starts being do-able for me. They start to play for longer periods and the good part is that you can send them off to play with each other! When I only had two, around 6 months was the hardest age because the 6 month old wanted constant personal stimulation and the toddler had no one to play with and was used to me playing with her. I feel like I get more done now with 3, except the washing. Never on top of that.
