Not sure if anyone with a big family has time to be on bubhub! but anyways thought I'd try...
We have 2 school kids (5&8) and 1 baby 8 months old. Our school morning goes like this:
6.30-7am start getting up - DP still here so gets older kids breakfast if they are up
7am all up, make school lunches, change baby's nappy, get rest of breakfasts for older kids when DP gone to work around 7/7.15
7.40 get mine and baby breakfast and put away dishes
8.10/20 have quick shower
8.30 help 5 year old with shoe laces, dd hair and last things together for school.
(this is never even this smooth as baby is crawling and into everything and keeps falling over so there are multiple pauses while I tend to her, 5 year old still has poo accidents so there's that to deal with some mornings)
9am-3pm try and fit in shopping, washing, housework, playing with baby and time for me (hahahahahahaha)
After school there is gymnastics 2 days, soon to be rugby and maybe french lessons. I try and have dinner ready by 5.30 but gees somedays that ends up 6 and beans on toast! After school they need snacks, want time to play outside, homework. My poor baby lives on breast milk (cus it's easy!), avocado's, bits of our meals and rafferty pouches. Bath's start at 6-6.30pm, bub is bad sleeper so if DP not home from work older kids are by themselves in living room watching tv or playing on computers or fighting! and of course that means just as bub drops off they wake her up. So rare for all to be asleep before 8.30. I try and keep on top of things by making sure our benches are always clear at night and folding laundry etc but I'm so tired by that point getting stuck into something like sorting out the fridge or dealing with paperwork makes me want to cry!!! and often I do!
How do you manage?!?! 3 isn't even a huge family I know but it's such a struggle. This here is my only me time today I have until my coffee is finished then if I don't get stuff done while bub sleeps it'll all descend into absolute chaos!
