Hi everyone, just wanted a rant I guess...
I've got a 2 week old a 2 year old and an 8yr old I'm struggling with ideas 2 entertain them all n with the summer holidays coming up I'm dreading it!!! My newborn is breastfeeding on demand, my toodler won't sit still n argues constantly with my 8year old wen she's not at school (I won't even start on the dreaded school run!) I feel so housebound cus I don't drive can't go anywhere 4 days out n there's nothing in our town 2 do. Im beginning to think I was silly 2 choose a buggy board over double buggy as when toodler decides not 2 want go on it I'm stuck in street with screaming toodler n baby in pram so we don't leave house! Im so tired from night feeds my back is playing up from bending over to feed n the sweaty hot weather is driving me crazy!!! Anyone sympathise.. At all??? Know I need 2 just get on with it but how?!!?!

I've got an 8 yr old, 6 yr old, 22 months old and 10 week old ( all boys). I can sympathise. It's actually not so bad but I've found that the heat and end of term is getting to us. I've got a double buggy but find it a hassle so been using pram and trying to balance toddler on top which has worked until he fell asleep on it today! Luckily I do have the car though. I bf on demand and co-sleep so my back is ok although it was a bit achey at first. I find the newborn is the easy one now he has got through the colicky evenings and I try to ignore things and imagine that the children are learning to be independent in sorting out their arguments. I do feel guilty about not giving them individual quality time though.
Hope this helps. Btw, no idea how to change my mn nickname!
