time spent on cafemom

How do you make time for yourself on cafemom? it seems like everytime I try to have a little time to myself the house falls apart like they are all working against me. then I feel guilty like I shouldn't have wasted time and don't need to be ignoring the kids. when do the rest of you find time for the computer? it seems like so many moms are on here all day but I don't get where you find the time.

  • I generally do only very late at night, long after the children are asleep and I have worked hard all day. I almost never do during the day unless I am nursing the baby to sleep and take my phone in the room when I do. Other than that, the only time I do is when I am looking up a recipe on cafemom or a few other websites I like. I really can't believe the way some mothers seem to spend all day posting things on cafemom or facebook. You look at their page and all the times the have posted something and wonder what their children are left to do without their mother all day!

  • I usually get on here and there throughout the day. But today was too hectic with the twins so this is the first chance I have and it's 11pm here now. Nighttime is usually the best time for me though.

  • How do I get time for myself? I make activities for the kids. They color in the morning, or I let them paint, or if the eldest is home they go outside...

    and then I just bounce on and off. I'll stop cleaning and read the news, or I'll hop on and answer questions, ten, fifteen minutes here and there.

  • When I'm off work, I'm on cafemom off and on throughout the day. My kids are not babies though and mostly they're at school when I'm on cafemom or playing outside with their friends or asleep for the evening.

  • I have two tots under three. Realistically, I never have the time. But when I know they are not about to kill themselves [or each other], I sneak a minute or two on CM...either on my phone or the computer. Most of the time, though, its at night when everyone else is asleep.
