    Default Whats your Schedule ?

    I have a nearly 6 month old, I was under the dilution before going on maternity leave I would have all this spare time lol I'm struggling to keep on top on things. I was hoping you could share your schedule to get stuff done with me, how do you manage to keep ontop of everything
    Thanks in advance

    I don't! (Keep on top of things, that is).

    I do basic housework each day sufficient to keep us clothed and fed (ie. laundry, dishes, dinner), but anything beyond that waits until the weekend when DH is home to help out.

    As for the list of things I intended to do while on maternity leave (eg. cleaning out cupboards, organising paperwork, painting eaves) - HAH!

    same as @Gentoo 'cept I barely do washing during the week either
    We have a cleaner come in once a fortnight and then DH usually does a vacuum and mop of the ground floor on the weekends.
    Very rarely I will get another vacuum session in on the first and second floors but generally baby takes all my time and what little time I get when she sleeps during the day (in the carrier) I do things in our home office for DH's business.

    Mine are a bit older (4 & 1) but this is us:

    5.30- 6am - I get up and go for a run on treadmill
    630am - shower and have breakfast.
    7am - kids get up.
    715- kids have Breakky while I clean kitchen, put washing on and make beds
    7.45am - playtime. Kids usually go in toyroom and play together. I'll spend a bit of time doing whatever needs doing
    8.30- hang washing out. Kids out for a play outside
    915 - bottle for ds2
    930 - bed for ds2, morning tea for ds1
    9.45 ds1 and I might do some cooking or baking.
    1030 ds1 and I will do some chores around the place or more washing
    11 - ds2 wake up and we will all have a little play
    1130 - lunch
    12 I'll clean up from lunch while kids play
    1pm outside if it isn't too hot. Or I'll set up slip and slide or paddle pool
    2pm ds2 bottle
    230pm ds2 bed and ds1 is allowed to watch some tv for quiet time. I'll catch up on stuff during this time
    330 - afternoon snack and I'll prep dinner
    4pm ds2 awake. And I'll put dinner on to cook and this is usually when DH gets home
    5pm dinner
    545pm we all go outside (during summer) play, feed the sheep, cow, donkeys. Might go for a walk or a drive around our property. Or catch yabbies in the dam etc
    630-7ish shower
    7-730 - downtime, bottle for ds2 and then bed for ds1 and ds2

    This obviously varies a lot if we go to Playgroup or somewhere. Or if ds2 is at kindy.
    But that's a pretty basic rundown of our day

    It is great!
    We miss out on things like walking down to a local park but we make up for it by walking to the creek and catching tadpoles

    My dd is 1 and any cleaning is done at night. I'm usually sweeping/mopping dusting, cleaning toilets/bathrooms, ironing and so in after dd is in bed. Anywhere from 8pm-midnight. Not the best time but I just love waking up in the mornings to a beautiful clean house and happy for dd to crawl (now a few steps!!) anywhere she likes. I clean her room during the day but I usually take her with me and try to occupy her with something different. It is a bit different with your Lo because of age but the night cleaning I've been doing for ages now.
