Christine said it better than I could and she's right. The kids come first, the dishes can wait. :-)

You don't - if you put your kids first (as you should), the housework may have to suffer a little. Don't let clutter or laundry or petty chores stress you out. It will get done eventually. I work full time; it's not easy. My son is 5, and I get him involved in dinner prep - he loves the time together, and I'm making dinner too. I also set one small goal each night after he goes to bed (pay bills, wipe down the kitchen, fold laundry, clean one bathroom) and limit myself to about one hour of tasks at most. If you do too much in a day, you'll be exhausted and stressed. Your kids won't care if the house is a bit cluttered, but they will definitely notice your mood if you're sleep deprived.
