    Default Struggling with routine :/

    I have a DD6, DS2 and DD4 weeks. I am struggling to get anything done at all. I am stressing as school goes back in a week and I am rarely ready before midday. The house is often a mess, I just can't stay on top of things, most nights dinner is a struggle to get ready. When the baby sleeps I try to sleep as night times are still really tough, waking 2 hourly.
    I'm just really struggling with 3 kids and can't seem to find a rhythm that works for us.
    How do/ did you get things done? How do I establish a rhythm to the day so my older children have some amount of normal? I'm dealing with a lot of changes in behaviour as things are so different from what they used to be since Bub came along.
    Ideas, suggestions? Thanks

    hi soulmama. decide what is your biggest hurdle in each day. if it is dinner time, start making meal plans, even just one day at a time. get your meal ready as early as you can, a crock pot, might be helpful. even think about getting the children lunches ready the day before, sandwiches freeze and some home baked goodies go well for snacks. the housework can be done after the children are asleep. don't worry about getting a whole house clean, but just do what you can in 30 mins each day/night. also your baby needs the most attention for this time, don't try to do too much, but just set yourself little goals, and you will feel better. marie
