Just curious what other Moms do when their kids go back to school, its always a big change. How do you fill your day? What new or different things do you do?

I am sitting here right now saying "wow" 5 minutes to myself. I don't know what to think of it. But soon enough I will get a call from the school saying "did you send the lunch?? are those mosquito bites or did he have chicken pox???" my school pesters me worse than my son when he is begging for something he cant have. But still. For the minute it is absolutely weird to have a few minutes to myself, to enjoy my coffee and watch grown up tv like NBC instead of NIK or disney.....lol

I have been unpacking since it was hard to get that done with both kids underfoot. Also busy taking inventory on what we need for the new baby in a few months.

How old are your five children then ? My pets keep me busy as well , I am up early monday -Friday to muck his stable out , put him in the paddock , in the afternoon , I bring him in pick his hooves out , give him his tea , make his bed of straw up , come home & see to te, my children ride him on weekends. he is recovering from lamintis , we have 3 dogs , 2 rabbits & 3 chinese hamsters , I clean out the rabbits & hamsters with the help of the children on a weekend. I am a parent governor at my children's school & go on courses , & meetings when school is on . You can add me to your circle if you want to .Have you got twins then or are they close in age ? There is only 1 year 2 days between my oldest 2 .

Tanya as Mom to five I understand where u are coming from! lol
My two daughters are both still home with me so once the older children go off to school with Dad if I'm lucky I get to have breakfast on my own and some days even get to look at the newspaper (not that theres a whole lot to read in it any more). Its a different routine once kids start school. I am trying to get in daily walks with the girls, thank God for our double jogging stroller! In between I will be able to find 30 mins here and there to do some of my work. Its our own business so I do have flexible hours, but I still have to make time to do this. Takes some time to get into the new routine for me anyhow after having everyone including my husband home for Summer. As for getting time to yourself you are right at not getting much time to yourself. My younger kids are still at the stage of where's Mom even when I am just in the shower or bathroom and they come knocking on the door and then start to push things under the door to me! lol

my youngest child starts school on the 6th September , I have 4 children , what will I do , walk my 3 dogs seperately , be able to do the house work , without having children under foot ,I will be able to start jogging again & find time to write to pen pals , as having 4 children , you do not get much time to your self especially during the holidays.
What will you do Zita ?
