I feel that way too. I’m a SAHM and have a 2-1/2 year old and 4 month old twins. I barely get time to play with my oldest anymore or take him anywhere due to the twin babies between feeding them and being afraid to go out because they’ll get sick (they were preemies and one of them was just in the hospital for 5 days with RSV so a little cautious right now). It’s so hard. I’ve been trying to make sure we have some time where we can read together or do crafts on the floor in front of the babies while I’m bouncing them (they rarely sleep at the same time). It’s hard and I feel so guilty but am in survival mode right now. I do have my oldest help with things and he seems to love that, even just putting the diapers in the diaper genie or getting burp rags. A while back I tried to make sure we’d have an outing once a weekend even just running to Target, just my oldest and I. He seemed to like that too.
