I know I'm bitching a lot but I don't care. I've got my first kid coming soon and studying for the fall sitting is going to be exponentially more difficult than studying for the sitting in April. That's partly why I went so hard on the material, in hopes of wrapping all of this up beforehand. God damnit. God ****ing damnit.
I have 2 kids (now 7 and 9) and can verify that studying is tougher with kids...but studying with a < 6 month old is WAY easier than studying when they are mobile. Yes you will be tired because you kids still wakes up at night, but by no means should you not be able to study as much because you have a kid.

For me, I actually could study more after we had our first kid because we were not going out as much (out to eat, drinking, etc). I've been through the ringer, I have more 4's and 5's on my transcript than people have tests taken.

Failing sucks. Failing 3 times in a row with scores of 4, 5, 5 sucks...I know. Now get over your feelings. Get drunk tonight. Continue doing well at work, and then get back on the books within the next month. You will be fine, and giving up at this point in time is just dumb.

Regardless of that, the FSA exam system is a joke and if I ever get opportunity, I'll do everything I can to reform it.
