I'm SAHM finding myself sometimes jealous of DP leaving the house at 7am and coming home 7pm to eat dinner, chat to kids and quick tidy up after dinner while I put the baby to bed. I'm strung out trying to fit in housework / shopping etc and taking the older kids to their activities. Struck me that if I was working all that other stuff would happen after work? I read that thread on full time parents routine and take my hat off to you all juggling work and kids. But when do you shop? Do you have a meal planner / cook up at the weekends? Do your kids do after school activities / playdates?
How do you find time for bubhub? I'm typing this all jittery as baby is asleep but could wake any second and there's stuff everywhere, but I need a few minutes downtime here and there? I had way more downtime at work ;-)
I do notice now that both older kids are at school there is less mess to contend with during the day though now I have a crawler who is hell bent on keeping the house as messy as possible.
do you ever just think ah stuff it, sit down and watch crappy TV with a bottle of wine and then wake up the next day and it looks like a herd of elephants had a party? Nope? Just me?
