I work full time weekends from 7P-7A as a Registered Nurse, I'm so wiped out after the weekend, I need some tips to power me up for the week with the kids...

Two words - Play centre! I take my son to the local indoor play centre and he runs himself ragged for an hour or so and then we go home and have a nap together! I run down his batteries so we can recharge together! hehehe!

hi i work from 500am to 630pm sometimes. it is hard but it is okay. my son and i normally just sit at home and play around. i chill out while he uses all his activities. although right now though he is in time out. normally i have no energy on saturday but by sunday ive got a little of energy. i try to play with chris alot cuz he only actually sees me on weekends and for an hour after work before his bedtime. it is hard because he seems not to listen to me at all but we are doing fine now.

Hi, i find it very difficult sometimes to cope with work and my son. I only work about 30 hours a week but it's still very tiring with all the running around involved in it! I get two full days off, which is when my son isn't at school, so we tend to do things that are really chilled out! We always rent films, and lounge in front of the tv with a big duvet and bowl of popcorn, gives me a chance to put my feet up!
