Your mental skills can indeed be disrupted by such stress. You don't mention a husband - if there is one, couldn't he share some of the chores and pleasures of caring for the kids and running the house ? Where a wife works, such tasks should be shared fairly.
I wonder whether there might be an element of PND, Post-Natal Depression, here - a good GP or shrink could check for this - it can cause the symptoms you describe, and responds well to treatment, by medication and/or CBT style counselling.
