    General run down of my day as stay at home mum of 6, 4 with special needs. 5 kids at home. 1 adult child with disabilities living out of state.

    From midnight
    Ingore the sounds coming from lounge in the hopes of getting some sleep or come sit in my chair redirecting children back to bed, talk to whoever cant sleep or is feeling off colour.

    5.30 give i and get up. Start nagging 5 kids to remove their bodies from the bed, keep nagging until all the teens are up.

    7.10 do the final losing my mind round of bedrooms with the i am leaving with with dressed or not in 20 mins routine. Continue with 5 mins warnings.

    7.20 meds rounds

    7.30 start the school run.

    8.30 either start with specialist appointments (4 kids with special needs and elderly parents) or head back home to do housework and try and help ds3 get up to stratch for school next year. He has already been delayed as he is not meeting his milestones quite yet. Help dd1 with any phone calls or leaving the house etc...

    2.00 to 3.30 school pick up run.

    3.30 if we have no after school appointments than do a quick shop.

    4.20 to 6.30 get home. Supervisor homework x4 and make dinner be a never ending referee.

    6.30 dinner

    7.00 start bedtimes. Encourage homework and not random netflix with teens.

    Continue to remind people of the time. Do meds rounds.

    Watch my shows.

    From 10 to early hours of the morning Remind kids teens sleep is required.


    I have adhd kids who struggle to sleep more than a few hours even with meds.

    Depending on the night i get from 0 to 5 hours sleep. Adverage is about 3 to 4 hours often part of that in my chair in the lounge.

    I work 5 days a week. Here is mine.

    Mon, Fri and Saturday.
    5am wake up, turn cartoons on and flick on the kettle. Have a much needed coffee. While both kids are eating breakfast, I have the fastest shower in history. It takes me 40 minutes to do my face and hair for work. so I fit this in around getting the kids ready, lunches, putting slow cooker on ect...
    We are out the door at 7.15am. I drop both kids off and make my 40 minute journey to work. Husband picks both kids up as he finishes early afternoon. Shower and dinner. Kids are in bed at 6.45pm every night.

    Tuesday and Thursday.
    These are more chill as I start work at 5pm. so I lounge around most of the day, watching the kardashians. Get dinner ready for the husband and kids.

    Wednesday and Sunday are my days off= Bliss.

    Yep 😭 that's if the trains run on time.
    No jobs in Wollongong. Has to commute to Sydney. And can't afford to live there! A lot of people do the commute down here- my brother, friends and dad does too.
    It destroys him.

    I have a similar commute. It's soul destroying. Leave in the dark and see DD for all of 10 mins in the morning and get home in the dark when she's asleep. I work only 3 days a week which is my saving grace. F ing hate it. There is NO work where I live and we can't move as will lose joint custody of DSSs.

    Fingers crossed one day a job comes up closer to home- for both you and my dh. He's always looking but there's not much. He'd pack shelves but he's overqualified and also we'd struggle to afford our mortgage on two minimum wages.
    We hope to win lotto 🙄

    11.00am Prep for lunch, kids play. Emails, facebook etc Mondays: go to homeschool gym
    12.00pm Lunch time, clean kitchen, baby sleeps in Ergo or bed
    1.00pm Day's readings (schoolwork: geography/history/literature), Thursdays: park with friends or friends house
    2.00pm Snack, outdoor play or creative work (art/craft) Wednesdays: library & shops,
    4.00pm Finish up chores, prep dinner, tv time

    When I go back to work I'll be out from 3-7pm four days a week and it'll be hectic fitting it all in.
