I have people tell me they don't know how I do it all the time...but the truth is I don't, and I am very quick to tell them that. No one can do it all, and anyone who acts like they can is lying, eg. I know a woman who works full time, and is a body builder and a mother of three. She makes out like she is some kind of superhuman who can do it all and is happy ALL but the truth is she falls asleep at her kids sports games and her husband made a passing comment recently about how moody she is...so yeah, not doing it all well at all. I'm sure there's more she's hiding behind her 'I can do it all' front that she puts on.

I work. If I didn't work I wouldn't cope at all. I have a business I'm running and a 4yo and 5 month old. It's the work which keeps me sane.

Some weeks or days I have it all together: meals cooked, house reasonably tidy and functioning, kids behaving and a pleasure to be with, and I love my husband. Other days/weeks the kids are ratty and nothing keeps them happy, I can't be bothered and use the TV as a babysitter, the house is just on functioning and there is nothing tidy about it, and meals leave much to be desired. Nobody has got it together all of the time, and just aiming to be fed, housed and happy (as much as possible) is truly enough. I don't care at all how my house presents, as a previous poster said all homes with kids in them have stuff in them. It's life, and I'm personally so much more comfortable in a home that is lived in than a home that reflects magazines or advertising or tv shows.

I think a part time job would actually do me some good. I felt much better today. I keep forgetting to take my thyroid meds which I think throws me right off. Thanks for all the honest replies its great to hear that I'm not alone xx
