I am a SAHM with a toddler,never had a nanny and no wash+iron lady.I do almost everything,my husband helps me when he gets back from work or on the weekends.One thing for example when its washing day i fold all our clothes and put it on our table,when hubby is back from work he helps me put the clothes away,or when i cook my hubby comes and puts the dishes into the dish cleaner or on weekends he will take the clean dishes out and we put them back together.Also he brings the dirt away. Maybe you could also ask your husband for a little help in the house.Just small stuff like my hubby does,it wont kill him and you will see even if he helps alittle its a big help.Other then that try to get a routine,like shower in the morning and what i find helps the most is to try to have everything clean and keep it clean.Its easier to keep the place tidy if you put everything you used back after using it,small things like scissors on the counter etc.

In addition to what Michelle has said, do your 10 and 7 year olds have chores? If not, time for them to start pulling their weight.

Then he can pull his finger out and help. Sorry but marriage to me is a partnership on all levels, not just in the bedroom. He helped create your children so he can help look after them. He can even do some housework, it won't kill him.

Sorry, I just hate men that think they don't have to do anything around the house because it's "woman's" work.

I forgot to mention my husband doesn't help out at all & expects perfection when he gets home at 3:30.

Wow! I have never had a nanny or a wash and iron lady. I have always done everything myself and I have 3 children. You need to prioritize and realize that not everything will be done everyday.
I'm also not a SAHM, I work full time.
