Hi, I guess I'm looking for advice on how to cope with raising three kids. There are moments where I think I have everything together, and moments where I'm just overwhelmed by the chaos. My children are under the age of 5. I guess I'm feeling like this b/c we just got back from spending the holidays in our second home in LA, where they were able to run around outside; it was just much more relaxing. But we now that we're back in our freezing cold NY, where we now have to stay indoors all day, I'm feeling claustrophobic and wondering how to keep my kids stimulated for the winter. My 5 year old goes to kindergarten, my 3 year old goes to preschool three morns a week, and my 1 year old sticks with me the whole day. I do get some reprieve when the older two go to school, but no matter what I'm doing something child related 24/7. It's great when the three play together, i love those moments. My hubbie comes home in the evening to feed them and put them to sleep, so that I can go to the gym to get out my stress. So I can't complain about that. My friends are amazed that I do have 3 kids and raising them as a SAHM; they claim I'm doing a great job, to which I am flattered, especially since you don't hear a lot of compliments in this motherhood job. I do want to get back into the work field, but I am not keen on doing it now since my kids are so young and I can't back these moments. So for another year, I'm staying at home. I know it's all about positive attitude, but for those moms who are raising more than 2, how do you cope with not having a social life and the chaos? thx for reading!
