I've just found this board and would like to say hello; I don't feel like there are many people who understand being a sahp around me so this could be a great place for moral support! I've got 3 daughters aged 5 1/2, 4 and 18 months. I feel so tired all the time and am pretty useless once they are in bed even though I should totally use that time for clearing/tidying etc. Why is it that even once the crazy sleepless nights of the newborn stage are over i still don't ever feel fully charged? I rarely get full nights at the moment as my 4 year old has nightmares and often needs a cuddle once or twice a night, or even sometimes ends up with us. But even still it can't just be that. I'm sure it is also the constant crazy conversations and tying to clear up whichever cupboard the little one has emptied when I've got my back turned. Anyone else find just being with small kids all day knackering?! (Wonderful of course too, but I'm assuming you all know that or you wouldn't be here!) Oh yeah, and the eldest is in school so I have 2 at home all day.
