    Default When all your kids are at school

    I am thinking about giving up work until the kids start high school. They are both under 3 at the moment. I cant imagine life without them around all day. Besides the normal shopping, housework, cooking etc what do you get up to while they are at school?

    I'm not answering for me as I work and my kids are not at school, but a friend who has 3 kids at school and doesn't work seems busier than me and she gets no housework done. She does a lot of volunteer work at the schools, drops kids to and picks them up from school, runs around taking them to extra curricular activities, general 'Mum' things like paying bills, groceries, sorting out all the school commitments etc.
