Am I the only SAHM that can't seem to get it all done?

I stay at home with my 4 year old daughter and it sems like there is not enough time during the day to get everything done. Am I doing something wrong?

  • You have a four year old...don't be so hard on yourself. No your not doing anything wrong.Having even one child is enough to keep you busy all day.

  • I feel like this too. There are rarely days I feel like I get it "all done' but I do make time to read to my kids a lot and to me that's what's the most important.

  • well, what all are you trying to do?

    the only things that NEED to be done are take care of the kid, cleaning, cooking.
    cleaning can be done easily by doing a little of everything each day or assigning days of the week for certain things/rooms.

  • No ma'am. I don't think you EVER get everything done. People don't understand that a SAHM is a 24/7 job. There is no time off to decompress. Not as easy as people seem to think.

  • I am right there with you, but I have three boys 11, 4 and 2. The most important thing is happy well taken care of kids, the rest is just gravy. Someone posted that the other night and it has become my motto!

  • sorry not in the same boat...my SO and I clean together. I clean up after myself when he gets home so I can do it quicly. wash my dishes, etc. We clean everything else at night when our son is getting tired and is done with everything. We deep clean once or twice a week to ya know, mop floors and clean the bathroom, be we do it together so it's not an all day thing, just an hour or two.
