Melody, I'm so glad you got some down time. You have an amazingly stressful mix of little ones in your household! 3 under 5 - and 2 at the same level of (I would imagine) potty-training and tantrum throwing. No wonder you are wiped out!

Dad's often (not all, but many of them) have no clue how stressful the kids actually are. My husband is so terrific about helping out around the house, I do not ever complain about him - he takes care of ME. But even he does not often see the kids in full-out "aggravation" mode, because he doesn't get home from work in time.
