... other is 3 yrs old.. and they are definetly alot to handle. Is this much stress normal?
Hello chasity028. I don't see why not. Children can be stressfull. You're constantly watching them, makeing sure they're safe, not getting into trouble. And given thier ages, a handfull of energy. If you feel that its becoming to much, meaning the stress, then talk to say your primary doctor, and she/he might prescribe something to help ease your anxiety,stress. Best of wishes,pledge
Hi chasity, & welcome to the site. I had 3 children all boys 1 year apart. You talk about a handful! I thought at times I would literally lose my mind! I so understand your level of stress, but believe it or not it is normal. There are a few things you could do to help. There is enough age difference there you can start enlisting the 6 year old to help out with the 3 year old. Give yourself a break too if possible. Have someone watch them for a few hours one day a week. Go shopping, or to a movie with a friend, get a massage. Anything to release all that tension you are having. Try to have a girls night out, or if you are married have a date night. It does wonders for you, & your marriage. If all else fails you can as my friend Pledge says enlist your doctors aid. I wish you the best from someone that's been there...
Welcome to motherhood! Yes, it is stressful being a mom. Try to not overfill your day with too many things to do. Take one thing at a time. Try to stay calm and take some time for yourself everyday. Share the responsibility with your spouse if you have one.
