Being a Carer and a Mother

(2 Posts)

I am a mother of a 3 year old and also a carer for my mother in law who is in the later stages of Dimentia. It has been fun and games I can tell you but my daughter has been so resilient . . up until now.
She is now at the pre school stage and is really pushing boundaries by ignoring both her father and I when its time to eat sleep or just any time we instruct her to do anything.
It's hard because most of the time we are both exhausted by caring for my husbands mother.
Is it really meant to be this hard?
