Ego in the midst of severe exhaustion.

Somehow I feel like if I was in my 20s I could just cry freely, "I exhausted. This is so hard." But because I am in my 40s and this was a very clear deliberate choice to have kiddos I feel like I have to have a stiff upper lip. My little ten month old girl is sick and needed lots of love the last two days, but it is very hard to give her what she needs when there is another little ten month old boy who wants his mommy too. I called my mom today and just broke down saying how exhausted I was. She was so sweet, but I feel like embarrassed. Like I should be able to handle this with better mental health. A good night sleep would do wonders.

Moms with kiddos close in age how do you handle all the neediness. Even when I get one from the crib to take downstairs and the other one is crying it makes me feel guilty. My husband totally handles it in stride, but then again he doesn't have the 24/7 thing going on either. PAH
