FT working mom with two little ones... help

User - posted on 11/29/2011 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi, wondering how other mom's handle life with kids....

I work full-time and have an 8 month old and a 4 year old. By the time I get off of work, pick the kids up from daycare and head home it's about to be 6pm. First thing I do is nurse the baby, then get her situated on the floor with toys. It's now off to feed myself and my 4 year old. (Husband doesn't get home till 7:30ish). It's roughly 630-645pm. Cooking seems to take 4-ever! So anything quick works. Then it's time for baths. I'm exhausted by now and still have to do dishes, laundry and clean. I'm so tired these days. Does it get any better??? Any suggestions on how I can make things run smoothly? My husband is a great help but I don't feel like it's enough.

Why not do a lot of crock pot meals so dinner is already ready when you get home at night or do all prep work the night before so it is literally just popping it in the oven etc. If you are only home for a few hours a day. Honestly there can't be much cleaning to do and really only do what is mandatory and save the rest for the weekends.
