  • You aren't alone. At night when everyone else is sleeping sometimes I look out the window and see another light on. I tell myself that must be another mom. My fridge is my lifesaver. At Shopko I picked 2 washable chore boards and a calender. One is my kids chores. One is a "Honey Do" list and the calendar shows all appointment, classes, and events in abbreviated form and a different color for each person. It helps to divide things up or explain to DH why you need a hand.
