Re: Help through the holidays
Heya, don't worry about seeming whiny, this is a good place to talk about stuff like that. The best thing I can think of doing is to plan the weeks, make sure you set aside time to get out of the house, make sure your husband gives you chance to get away from the kids but also that you get involved with them. Remeber the holiday is for all of you, you included and it can be the happiest time of year. Perhaps you could get a babysitter for an evening and give yourself a night out as something to look forward too. if it ever gets too much I find getting outside helps, if there are other mums nearbyu can you arrange that one takes both sets of kids for a day and the other the next or something?
Just do lots of fun things, make it a special time rather than a depressing one - I knw it's hard, i hate holidays too, but the more yout try at least you can be proud for the effort.
