  • I have a 14 yo DS, 12 YO DS, and a 9 YO DD. So during the week I am up at 6:00 with my middle one, he leaves for school at 6:50, DH brings him. Then other son and DD get up and they get ready for school. I bring DD for 7:45, then back home for DS. The rest of the day is spent cleaning, shopping, or doctors appointments, basically whatever needs to be done. Then starting at 2:00 I pick up middle child, bring home, pick up DD then home for 1 hour to start supper before picking up oldest.

    Once home it is supper then evening activities which include, soccer practice, yoyo class, meetings, soccer games. I usually have very busy days and by 9:00 I am ready for bed.

  • I work outside of the house as a special ed teacher, tutor part-time at night, also attend school full-time, homeschool my oldest, and I'm in my 3rd trimester, so I miss a LOT of sleep every week.

    Usually I wake up at 6 and start my hair. Nudge LP periodically to start getting the girls around...which honestly, he is not a lot of help...I still end up doing the hair and outfits at least. I have to have the kids loaded and ready to go at 7. Drop them off, and then I'm at work until 3, or 3:30 if I stay late to grade or plan. Pick up the girls if LP hasn't done so already. I go home, get through some of my daughter's school work, and then I start dinner and housework while LP finishes up the schoolwork. After dinner, I try to finish the little bit of cleaning that HAS to be done and start baths. LP stays in there to finish and get them ready for bed, and I use bath time as my peace and quiet to work on my own school work. cont

  • although I usually try to at least get a head start on my schoolwork during my lunch break at work. After the kids get out of the bath, we will all cuddle up on the couch and watch something. If I am still not done with my homework, I will bring my laptop to the couch and continue to work. Once the kids are in bed, I will take my sleeping pill and take a shower while it kicks in. Then if LP "wants some", I swear he better get there before my head hits the pillow. LOL!

    On weekends, I usually try to do things that will help relive some of my duties during the week. I try to get ahead on housework and my own schoolwork. I do my daughter's lesson plans, grocery shop, and try to start the week with a clean house. Unfortunately, it doesn't always happen because I'm tired. BOO!! If I have to tutor any day of the week, my plans get really screwed up. Egh! I just hope the kids appreciate it someday!
