  • It would eaiser to say what isn't. The main house garbage, earning the family income, floors, and 50% of caring for the girls in the evenings. And clipping all finger nails and my oldest bath time and most of her bed time routine.

  • I figured I'd answer too. I cook dinner every day. I clean the house( vacuum, dishes, counters, floors), I do the laundry, fold the kids clothes, put away DH's(and mine). I do all of the shopping. I try to have dinner on the table by 6:00 every day. I pay all the bills. I take care of the kids, schedule appointments. I think that covers it.

  • I WORK outside the home, then come ,clean the house,do laundry, cook supper every day,grocery shop,pay bills, go to church, go to kids school functions, attend all school meetings,day off,take kids to clinic. I know you said SAHM, but, I do all the same things,and still have time for the malls and my nails. It's how you manage your time.
