I have just increased my children's days at Childcare from 2 to 3 days. I'm finding it an absolute struggle when they are home as they are extremely tired and grumpy. They cry a lot and I am dreading the days they are home with me as it's so overwhelming. Can anyone recommend anything to help?
DS1 is 4 DS2 is 2. DS2 sleeps during the day but only for an hr. DS 1 refuses to sleep. Sometimes he will fall asleep in the car but then the nights are terrible as he can't go to sleep until 9. I'm feel like I'm doing the wrong thing having them in Childcare for the extra day but we really need me to be working. How can I make the home days more enjoyable.
On a side note, we are trying not to spend money at the moment so going out to eat or to do activities is not an option!
