How do you juggle having 4 kids, a husband and taking care of a house and working part-time??

If feel like I never get to have any good one on one with each of my children. Any advice? Thanks.

  • Caffine Caffine Caffine... LOL Actually my older two are 4 and 6 and already have chores they do daily, it helps a lot, my 2 year old does a few things that I help with and the baby well hes only 5 months but is on an awsome schedule. Also I only work 3-4 nights a week and plan my meals for the week and chores that need to get done. Like Monday bedding, Teus Bathrooms.... That really helps. I also try to do 1 thing a day with each of them, bake cookies, help organize clothes, watch a movie, color a picture with them. 20 mins doesn't seem like a lot of time to do 1 on 1 but it seems to be more then enough for them.
