Ok, I have two kids ages 4 and 1. I love my second child with all my heart, but I must admit, baby #2 is really tough. I work a strenuous full-time, Monday-Friday, 9 hours a day job.
Its too much and I feel like I can't handle it sometimes. I am also attempting to run a small business out of my home office p/t. Or shall I say in my spare time, which is never. I really need a reprieve. My husband is great, and helps out where needed, but he also has a busy schedule with work, community activities, etc. And we all know whether you have a mate or not, the majority of the cooking, cleaning, bathing, laundry, grocery shopping, lunch packing, bottle making, & feeding is on the mother. I hate to admit this, but I am OVERWHELMED. I am TIRED. I need some rest. I feel like my full-time gig is taking up all of my time. By the time I get home, get dinner ready for the hubby, feed the two kids, get ready for the next day, and put the kids to bed, its 10:00PM and I am kaput. This leaves little or no time for myself or to run and expand my business. And the time that I do manage to find, I am so tired that if there is a bed in site, then I'm in it!!!
I would love to quit work or work p/t, but we just can't afford it. I make a pretty good salary and with one income, I am afraid that we might suffer financially. My son is getting ready to start private school and there is still the issue of my daughter's daycare along with a mortgage and car payment. Because I haven't had the time to dedicate to my business, it has generated little income.
I need some serious advice or encouragement, I can't be the only one in this situation.
