Ok I'm not coping. I have DS2 (4) and DS3 (4 months) at home full time. Yesterday I ate half a piece of cold toast and drank a can of Pepsi. I had not water at all, I was so dehydrated by the time DH got home - but honestly the day was such a blur I didn't realise.
The house is a disaster, the table is covered in folding, the laundry is full of washing to be done. I'm in full post partum hair loss mode so my hair is everywhere as I haven't vacuumed since I can't remember when. There are ants everywhere because I haven't cleaned the kitchen properly and DS2 has been helping himself to food while I'm perma feeding DS3. It's a bad time we are in leap 4 and he had his needles on Monday. I have no one to come over and help out. I have no child care and it's not an option anyway because we don't qualify for CCR or CCB and can't afford full fees.
So what do you do? How do you cope? Don't tell me to forget the house - It's a major stressor for me and I can't handle the mess and dirt.
What are your tips? My mum will be here on Saturday but she is 73 and has congestive heart failure. I really need the house to be tidy before she gets here or she will wear herself out helping.
