I have the flu and have no one I can call to help out with my youngest kids since DH is not home. How do you deal with this? I've been trying to have snuggle time all day so I can rest on the couch but at 2 & 3 they can't do that for long. They do play pretty well in their rooms together but without someone else here sleeping is not an option.
What everyone else said pretty much, you make it work. I have a 5 month old who freaks out if Im not holding her or actively playing with her, but thats another battle on its own. And a 3 year old who is pretty good with entertaining herself and becomes ecstatic if I put on a fairy movie.
