Well we went back to work today so it will be interesting seeing how getting time now is going to be like. My fiance went full time and I went part time due to starting school next week. I am going to spend all my free time snuggling with my daughter when I am able to be home with her. Befor today I would CLEAN! its crazy how easily the house gets dirty so fast once you have a baby



OMG I have given up on keeping the house clean.  As long as the main areas like the kitchen, bathrooms and living room is clean, I don't stress about it.

Quoting Elissa:

I used to not think about going to the bathroom and closing the door, showering in the quiet until your ready to get out and go to the toilet with the door closed and no one interrupting. Now, after having 5 children (under 7) when i get time to myself (very rarely) i like to disappear so that NONE of the kids see me go and use the bathroom. I have learnt that if you need to go, they always do too - or they feel the need to bang on the door and need to tell u something or complain about what their sibling/s are doing. My 5 minutes is showering/toileting in peace and quiet - with the door closed!! :)

Oh and having a cup of tea outside in the warmth uninterrupted.



Wow Elissa!  You really have your hands full.  I will pray for you.

Sleep IS SO valuable to me now.  I haven't had a full nights sleep since my son was born in May.

Read, play on the computer, and eat (never fails, when mommy wants to eat, my son wakes up or doesn't want to be in his bouncer!) :)





our daughter is exactly the same haha as soon as she figures out its lunch or dinner time she decides it's time to cry and isn't happy until she's getting a cuddle. we pretty much have to take turns eating dinner 





Oh wow! I thought my son was the only baby that waits until the moment I am about to put the fork to my mouth to wake up and since I'm the only one who can feed him (he's breastfed), I have to stop eating and feed him.  I have mastered eating certain foods with one hand while holding him in my other arm.

take a hot bath and read a good book. Although a book takes me up to 2 months to read now, lol. It's great when I can read without interuptions from my Fiance asking baby questions.

I will answer my own question. Whenever I do get a chance to be alone, I love to soak in a hot bath, listen to my favorite jazz band and read a good book. For whatever reason, my children will wait until I close the bathroom door to have to ask me whatever comes to their mind. So, I usually just take very quick showers.
