like, suicide inducing levels of anxiety, just waiting around to die type feeling--but you cant obviously kill yourself because of how it would harm your children, which are paradoxically the source of the feelings in the first place -- they also cause incredible strain on a marriage

at 2+ kids you completely lose any sense of independent identity -- your entire day while they are awake is to take care of them, make sure they don't harm themselves or each other (at my kids' ages they are literally doing this constantly)

i dont know what day of the week it is half the time -- just live for the stretches when theyre asleep -- ive probably gained 20 pounds over the past year -- i can't keep up my old exercise routines because of no gym and just being completely dominated by my situation -- ive stayed up until ungodly hours of the night because it's the only 'peace' i get while im awake

Sounds like your wife isn't doing enough of the child rearing then. My wife handles at least 90% of it; combination of she really loves the kids and I'm not good at a bunch of kid related stuff.

You know how I know this is legit? The staying up until ungodly hours. It’s the only respite you get so even though you’re tired as shut you will yourself to stay up as long as you can, regretting it the next day. That ability will fade, too. Eventually they’ll just have you on their schedule and then you know you’re really and truly defeated.

Sleep wise, your life becomes way more manageable if your day starts before theirs does. If you want to exercise be up by 5. My kids go down at 8 and I am in bed by 9:30. Yeah, I miss watching a couple of episodes in a show, but this way I can feel in control because when they wake up I have already exercised, showered, dressed, and made their lunches. When they wake up they are not interrupting me. I am ready for them and can ensure they stick to my schedule.

I never understood why my dad always got up at 4:45, but now I do. It also allows you to get to work at 8, leave by five and then be home for an hour before the mad rush to dinner, bath and bed starts. It’s painful to transition, but your body will adapt in two weeks.

I think I’d kill myself if I lost the 8pm - 11pm/12am window to just do my own shit. Some days I literally wake up looking forward to what I’ll do at 8pm. I’ll take the chaotic morning in exchange for it. Need a solid bloc of a few hours to be able to think like an independently existing human being, especially on weekends with no help.

I dunno, because if you stay up late you don’t have control of your time in the morning and can’t be flexible. I was only kind of joking when I posted that 4 to 6 a.m. is MY TIME.

I am always able to control what I do before 6. So if the baby keeps me up I can skip a gym day, compared to staying up to midnight not knowing it’s going to be a night where all three kids cry. If I want to watch a show, I can do that. At minimum I get a cup of coffee and dick around on XO for 20 min.

This. I have 5 kids and I usually have to just walk away when the going gets tough and get my wife to handle it all.

Women are way better at this and also the kids love their moms so much more for a long time. I'm a distant #2.

It is difficult when they are around Level 1. They'll be in the basement battling against rats, and I'll have to hover over them with a heal spell ready constantly. And it's all such a gigantic time suck. Teaching them to roll dice. Making sure they don't swallow them. Hand-painting figurines from the Monster Manual with them all day. No time to slay dragons, no time to Party with Heroic female companions with 25 Charisma, no time to even clean my fucking Pocket Plane. I think it is infested with Giant Spiders now, and Helm only knows what else.

And if you rolled your kid as a Monk or a Bard? Good luck with that until Level 11 at least - absolutely useless in combat until then. Luckily, mine are all Fighters or Rogues.

Additional benefit: kids love going outside rather than sitting inside with depressed dad staring at them.

You can do jogging stroller if you are a huge faggot, or just do regular stroller to somewhere low-traffic and then start teaching him how to walk better/faster. At some point they get their shit together where you can teach them running and sports too.

Too much screen time is horrible for kids, but I actually think some screen time is good for them.

Our older kid no longer naps, but we let him watch about an hour of Disney a day in the afternoon while the younger naps. Kids do well with routine and it is good for them to relax.

A couple of tips from someone who does pretty well with 2 very small kids:

1. Make a schedule with your wife. Our kids are up about 13 hours. We usually do a couple of hours of family time, which means the other person has 5.5 hours completely free (plus all the time after 8 pm).

2. Go outside. Kids need to burn off calories. Spend an hour on a walk and another hour on the playground. It makes it more enjoyable and the kids are in better moods. If you live in the city or some other dumb shit, move.

3. Put your phone away and embrace it. Parenting is not hard, it is only hard if you're trying to do your own screentime. Well just realize that when you have the kids, you need to be present with them. It's a struggle because we're all so addicted to the internet, but you're honestly missing nothing by just chilling with your kids and not reading some dumb ESPN mock draft or some other shit.

Show me where it says in the law that you can't swear in front of a toddler. He needs to develop his vocabulary and self-expression, you are helping him.

Also kids fucking love violence and laughing at stupid shit, so just watch whatever movies you like with him. Make sure no conservative grandparents are around and you are all good.

Sounds like you’re in a bad stretch. They get awesome right around age 3 and start wanting to do fun stuff (that we used to be able to do before we were all masked and imprisoned) and actually start giving and not just taking.

Try to split kids up and you do fun stuff with the older one while mom watches the baby? I have almost 6yo and almost 2yo and far prefer spending time with the older one right now because we’re buddies and wife seems better with the younger once because she can be mommy. Go jump in leaves, kick soccer ball, walk in the woods, then be fun dad and get iced cream, a pastry, or pizza as a treat. What’s stopping you from having fun with the 3yo right now?

Or go buy ingredients with 3yo for crappy homemade pizza, let 3yo put on toppings while mom plays with baby, and watch Moana together. Just keep them busy and it’s fun.

Homemade pizza is the ideal small kids activity. You do it together, you plan on getting a little messy, your kids LOVE it. And you end up with a dinner they are guaranteed to eat already cooked vs. trying to cook and keep them occupied.

Idk man my kids are 1 and 3 and its not that bad. Im running a 15 person business, I still work out 4x per week, and spend a lot of time with my wife. The biggest key is get them both to bed by 8pm and learn to get up at 5am. That gives you 5-6 hours of sleep if you go to bed at 11/12pm and 3 hours of free time after kids. Then hit the gym at 530am. You can 100% train yourself to sleep less. Just took my kids and wife to Santa Barbara for the night. Was a 180 time. The only hard thing is trying to hold a conversation with my wife sometimes becuase my son is a super extrovert and doesnt shut up. But me and the wife chat so much already that its not a big deal.

This is totally true, but there’s also the immense levels of honest to God joy, like I haven’t felt since I was a child. And this joy is not only frequent, but I can actually induce it by merely being in the moment with them.

So it balances out enormously positive. Plus I sleep great during the times sleep occurs.

Every parent who has multiple kids under the age of 4 has felt exactly how you do right now.

I'm right there with you. You no longer live for yourself and unless you stay up into the wee hours, you have no waking time to yourself. Of course you will then be exhausted the next day making it all much worse.

I have no advice. I've turned to distractions like collecting expensive pocket knives. It's helped a bit.
