  • My time is usually after the kids go to bed. I love to read in the nice hot bubble bath. And that's not to say that throughout the day I don't get a few minutes here and there but for 100% solitude that's my favorite!

  • yup after kids go to sleep i get me time. I would try to post my schedule but its so crazy from day to day that i actually have it all written out because I have so much going on there is no way i could put it all here and have enough room lol.

    I do get a little me time right around lunch its only a few minutes but it is nice to just have a few minutes to sit and check email :)

  • My kids are in school, so I get free time from drop off to pick up. I clean, I sew, I run a small jewelry business and do a lunch delivery for extra $$$.

  • Kiddo wakes up at 630 and puts a movie in the vcr in my room. When the movie is over he badgers me till I get up and make him eggs. After that we watch pbs for a min then go outside to play or if its raining we play indoors. Lunch around noon. Normally a grilled sandwich (his current fave). Then we swing till he falls asleep and I put him in his room. I then clean or read or whatever. When he wakes we play for a while and around 4ish I start dinner. Hubbys home at 5 normally.

  • I get up around 6:30. Make breakfast for the kids and get in the shower. I get myself together and pack a lunch for my older son. Brush the kids' teeth and comb their hair. I get their homework stuff together and drive 20 minutes to my youngest son's school to drop him off by 8:45, then double back to my oldest son's school to drop him off by 9:10. I have until 11 am to leave to pick my youngest back up, so what I do in those (almost) two hours depends on the day. Grocery shopping, other errands, etc. On Wednesday I help out at my oldest son's school during that time. At 11 I leave to pick up my youngest by 11:25. Then we run errands or come home and clean, whichever needs to be done more. I leave again at 3 pm to pick up my oldest by 3:25. Come home, do baths for the kids, dinner, homework. Spend some time with my husband or do paperwork with him. Shower again, watch the 10 pm news in bed.

  • thehairnazi.....who said it was so bad????? I personally respect moms who work because I know it's not easy. I would pull my hair out to be so rushed, I enjoy taking things at my pave and not rushing through life because of a crazy schedule.

    I dont have to imagine it I did it and now I choose not to do it. Guess what it is not any easier then when i did work full time. The only difference is that I no longer have to do it by so
