I was just wondering how other SAHMs handled the daily task of taking care of the kids and doing necessary housework. I just have a one year old little boy who's not even walking yet and I have a hard time keeping up with everything! And it doesn't help that he doesn't take naps like he used to! It's just me and him all day, so I feel a little guilty sometimes putting him in his playpen to play by himself while I try to get some housework done. My husband doesn't help either, his schedule is not insync with ours. He works 3-11, give or take an hour or two and sleeps in everyday till about noon. And by the time he gets up the baby's gone down for a nap so I can't do any noisy work (like vacuuming) till almost 3 and by then it's late and I'm tired, lol! And my son likes to "help" a lot, so a 10 minute chore ends up taking 30 minutes or more. My house isn't even dirty, it's just a cluttered nightmare. What do you do to keep the house somewhat clean and keep the kids entertained?
