I am exhausted. I have 3 children (Josh 8 , Maddi 5, and Hailey 21 weeks). My husband is a shift worker, so is only home on occasions.
By the time i get home from work and cook dinner, we don't eat until about 7.30pm - 8pm, the kids don't get to bed until about 9pm, I don't get to bed until about midnight by the time I clean up after dinner and get everything ready for the next day. Weekends are spent cleaning and washing. I hardly have time to spend with my kids - even to go through their homework with them, which is really depressing.
