  • I am a stay at home mom too. I am maid, nurse, cook, etc as well and my son is only 6 months old. I drives me crazy too...I want to tell my husband 'I am not your mother. If you want someone to pick up after you then pack your crap and move back home!'

  • Yes, I have a sophomore and a middle schooler and b/w sports, music, projects and trying to keep the house tidy with their help, and a part time job, I barely have an hour a day to collect my thoughts let alone indulge my side hobby/business! Weekends are full of kids coming or going or sleeping over...sometimes when I say no, they just don't get it!

  • Look for ways to lighten your load: carpool, trade child care, trade meals

  • Give your children there own chores to do. When the weekend comes around and there chores aren't done don't let then socialize with friends until the chores are completed
