ok i want to be honest with you all, sometimes i get tired of being a mother, doing all the things before going to work, like cleaning feeding bottles,washing and fixing clothes in the cabinet,taking care of the baby while at home. at times i feel like i am always in a hurry and i cannot take rest! do you feel like me? how do you manage to take care of all the things? i think i am tired ;(

Thank God for the nanny. Late last year there was no nanny for a month. I thought I was gonna die! I had to wake up early and sleep late. I was late for office, didn't have enough time to even dress properly for work. Take a time off by having a time for yourself. Maybe you could ask your hubby to look after the baby for a day so you could spend that day for yourself.

I have two children ages 3 and 11 months. I take them to the sitters, go to work, pick them up, come home, do cleaning, cooking, bathes, or whatever else needs to be done. My husband has been working nights so it is just me and the kids. I am tired all the time. He doesn't understand why. On the weekends he makes plans to go and do stuff and I have to tell him that I need some time to myself. Some days I just leave stuff and ask him to do because I can't.

Sometimes it's ok to say you're tired. That's when it's time to get some help, even if it's just for a few extra hours of sleep, a nice quiet rest or just a little time away. Taking time for a short breather can really make a difference in how you are able to get thru the rest of the day. How old is the baby?
