How do you ladies balance work, children's activites, their homework, and their spiritual needs and housework?

I have 4 beautiful children. How do all you ladies handle all of the responsiblity? Even SAHMs, I think have trouble balancing all the housework and the kids.

  • I've learned to prioritize and let things go that aren't a big deal. With the housework, I get the kids to do their part too. I keep things on a routine.

  • If you love what you are doing -- it's not work, it a pleasure. Do what you can. Focus on the children and family and the rest is very unimportant. Be the best MOM and WIFE you can be respect your children. Respect your husband and everything else will fall into place.
