Anna Saccone talks about juggling 4 kids in latest vlog and people are loving her honesty
"I need a break."
Parenting vlogger, Anna Saccone recently opened up about something a lot of mum can probably relate to - the struggle of juggling four children whilst also trying to make time for a partner.
The 31-year-old Cork native filmed most of her busy day, exercising, getting the kids off to school, working and breastfeeding. Naturally, at the end of it all she was quite tired and had planned to have a "mini-date night" with her husband, Jonathan when the kids had gone to bed.
Unfortunately, this didn't quite go to plan.

In the latter segment of the YouTube video she began:
"Tonight was... not that great."
She detailed how her youngest child, 5-month-old Andrea wouldn't settle due to teething and being under the weather. Needing to breastfeed, shower and then prepare school lunches, her hour of scheduled Netflix time with her husband fell by the wayside.
She kept it real saying,
"I'm feeling a little disheartened, not going to lie."
"Sometimes you just need half an hour to an hour to yourself, baby-free."
In the comments section, fellow mums empathised and rallied around her, offering supportive messages like:
"I totally know how you feel! We have so much trouble getting our baby down to sleep at night every night and I miss the quality time with my hubby too. I keep reminding myself that it’s a phase but it can definitely be disheartening / exhausting to feel like you don’t have time to yourself."
Always helpful to know you're not alone when you're feeling a little overwhelmed at times.
