Normal Again???

Will it ever be normal again?? I know that my life, from this point on, will never be the same. So much has changed in the last year that it is impossible to get things back to the way they were. But we have settled into a new routine. My husband wakes up around 7ish, goes to work around 9ish, comes home around 6ish. My 7 year old gets up around 8am, eats, plays, eats, plays, eats, plays...etc. This cycle happens about every 20 minutes. Literally!!! My 14 month old wakes up around 7am, eats, plays, naps, eats, plays naps, eats, plays, naps...etc. This cycle happens about every 6 hours or so. My 2 month old wakes up around 6am, eats, poops, sleep, eats, poops, sleep, eats, poops, sleep...etc. This cycle happens every 3-4 hours. With a 5 hour sleep from about 9pm to 2am. Me, you ask?? Me, well....I get about 5 hours of sleep a night (not all at once). I used to get 8-10 hours of sleep. I wake up, sometimes get a shower, get everyone fed, check my email real quick, wash clothes, feed kids, wash dishes, feed kids, clean kitchen, feed kids, clean living room, feed kids, clean bedrooms, feed kids,  sometimes remember to eat lunch around 2ish, vacuum house, feed kids, straighten bathrooms, make dinner (unless my husband decides to bring it home), feed everyone, clean kitchen, get kids to bed, and then I sit down. I relax.....until the baby starts crying. Then I go burp her and try to settle her down for a good 4-5 hour sleep. That's my day....when we don't have to go anywhere. When I do have to leave the house, watch out!!!
