  • Get help. Have someone take the kids one day a week while you get caught up.

    It takes a village.

  • Haha I am with you. My kids need constant supervision. Everything minute or so they start fighting. It is rare when I get even 5 minutes without having to intervene.

  • I make myself do a half hour of housework every day after my daughter goes to bed. Even though I'm tired, it's nice not to have to give up my weekends to cleaning.
