Question

I need some guidance with my two youngest children. I am a stay at home mother of four children. I currently have two in full time elementary school and two at home. The kids at home are 4 and 1.5 years old. I do women's bible study, moms group and PTA. So we are active 2-3 mornings a week. On the days we are home I am having a hard time and getting frustrated with the kids. I'm not even sure where the frustration is coming from. I need some guidance on how to structure our time. What should our at-home time look like? I have a ton of things to get things done around the house, and I feel like I could always be doing something. When the older two kids were toddlers at home I spent so much time with them doing activities, coloring, play dough, puzzles, reading, etc. I don't do much of that with the two babies. Can you help me with a schedule or plan for our day? The baby usually naps from noon-2:30pm and then we leave to get kids from school. So its mainly the mornings until lunch (and during nap time for the 4 year old) I am having a hard time with. Thanks.
