Anyone out there dealing with this situation? Very hard, very tiring, want to cry. To make matters worse I'm very Type-A organized, over planner. Love my husband and my kids (20 months, 6 and 9) but I feel like I have 4 kids instead of three. I want to have another baby so my son (almost 2) has a playmate. In a way, I think its nuts! My older full-time stepdaughters 6 and 9 both have ADHD with PTSD from their bio-mom abandoning them. Very poor social and behavior skills. We are working very hard with them but I feel like they are their own pair and my son is on his own. But with ADHD being genetic, I'm afraid in a few years I'll be the only one in the house trying to manage everyone's "forgetfulness". I have recently been put on anti-anxiety meds after our cross-country relocation and new home building project with three kids, and my husband working a lot, but will have to drop it to get pregnant again. I need to decide soon as I am getting in the upper thirties. Any advice for finding calm in the storm and letting the love shine through the hectic messes?
