I interact while I clean by making comments. Not the best Mommy time, not best quality time but it will have to do for me to accomplish my tasks. And then we have more planned time where I know I have it penciled in (my day planner in my head) that my child and I will go to the park and play in the sandbox. So I prepare the car with sandbox toys and off we go. Some of our time is very special and other times it is routine. I don't schedule times to do flash cards or teach counting. Teachable moments happen naturally in our house. While playing I count while singing the number of cars he has lined up. He's playing and learning. But we let it happen naturally so we are not putting pressure on him or us. You are more than a "SAHM," your title should be more like woman extraordinaire. Because you do it all. Give yourself a break and know you do the best you can.
