How do you do it?

How do you balance a long day at work, with coming home and bathing the kid, and then dealing with a husband who's begging you for a foot rub and you're just tired from work?!

I'm not too organized so have a hard time myself. I find that I have to be creative with my time as well. See if your husband can help with the child a little in exchange for the backrubs. On Sundays, I catch up on laundry and cook a few dinners for the week in one day so you just warm it up when you get home. Saves time for after work. I immediatley cut up all vegetables and cook all hamburger on weekends to cut cooking time down during the week. Keep everything you need for your tasks convenient to save time on looking for things etc. I dont know but maybe these ideas can help a little. Maybe put a chair outside the bathroom for rubbing his feet while the child plays in the tub. Or have a coffee and read a magazine so you can relax and rejuvenate while she bathes herself then you can be ready for him. Maybe some of this can help...
