How do you do it?? I've upped ms2's daycare to 2 days a week so I can catch up on housework and study. Working around school runs equals about 10 hours a week but also has to include shopping and any dr/ dentist apts etc. I'm managing 1-2 hours of study a week! I'm just doing a self paced mooc ATM but if I want to do proper study next year I'd be looking at 10-20 hours a week. I find with 3 kids our weekends are full of their activities/ parties etc. weekdays ms2 isn't in bed until 8.30 and older kids it's 9. I imagine I could maybe get an hour in at night.
I notice on daycare days there's much less housework to do as kids out most of day so I guess if I worked 3 days might be less mess to sort out? But when do you do washing? Shopping? Cooking? We have 1 home day a week but otherwise I try and get out with ms2 to kindygym / playgrounds etc. she's not good at amusing herself so even if we stayed home so i could do housework she'd end up watching tv all day. I should see those daycare days like a work day and only study but housework gets so behind I can't stand the chaos.
