My daily routine every day is wake up at 7:15am get myself breakfast, head up to feed my 5 month old his bottle and get him ready for the day, then after he is done go to my oldest sons room and get him ready and fed. Go meet Daddy (my husband at work for his lunch break at 9am. Come home by 11 and make lunch for my oldest at 11:30, then by 12pm feed my 5 month old. By 12:30 kids i babysit for come in and play with my oldest. at 2pm i am getting snack time ready and by 2:15 reading a nap time stories until 2:30pm. By 3 i have to leave to get a child from school and help him with homework. By 4 get every one up from nap and feed my 5 month old again. Then i make supper by 4:30 and we eat by 5pm.
and every day i add in dishes, laundry, clean the house after kids go down for nap, take the trash out, sanitize toys, dust, vacuum, sweep the kitchen, take care of the cats, change diapers get my boys ready for bed and tuck them in i also shovel the snow in winter and he then comes and snowblows like if there is more to be done.
My husband works at 5am until 2pm and he comes home and goes straight on the computer and asks me if we can watch our show which somehow i make time for even though i ask him to pause it like every 15mins cuz i need to get something. All he does is take the trash down to the end of the driveway on garbage pick up days, and gives our boys a bath every Sunday and Wednesday and kisses them. I have to ask him if he can do something for me and he says he will in like 10mins when he knows it has to get done.
Please tell me if i am doing everything myself or if i am doing what i should be doing as a mother and wife. i am exhausted by the end of the day and we got to bed at 9 or 9:30. and kids are in bed by 8:00 and 8:30
