For those that say....post yours here!

My other post got the D so I'm going to try to rephrase this in a nicer way.

For those that say.....my "job" is harder.  What is hard to you may be quite easy to others and vice versa.  Try to remember that.

For those that say....I work all day then have to do everything at home.  Some things can be let go.  "Good enough" is really good enough...that's why its called good enough.  Nothing has to be perfect and perfection will not usually bring you anything extra.  

For those that say....I can't even pee without my child present.  Unless your child has a medical disability that requires you to monitor their every move, placing your child outside of the bathroom while you are peeing will not hurt them.  You really CAN pee in private if you would like.

Please feel free to add your own helpful suggestions!  This is all IN FUN so let's keep it FUN!

For those who say someone else raises my kids because they are in a daycare, I invest a lot of money in where my children go as far as a learning institution, and because I dont qualify for state assistance, I foot a bill of 12,000 a year for my kids...............

Anyone else?  I say instead of allowing ourselves to be victimized we offer helpful hints for other moms that we've learned.

Here's another:

Believe or not...I can watch TV AND cook dinner at the same time.  The glory of multi-tasking lol!

I have to do 2 things at once or I will fall asleep. LOL. I work full time graveyard shift and stay at home all day with my kids. On a good day I get a 3 hour nap before I have to go to work again. So yea I do take a nap almost every day while my LO does.

Here's a secret...sometimes when my DD is sick and I have to stay home from work...I nap when she's napping.   Don't tell anyone.  It sounds better if I pretend that I never get a second to relax LMAO.

For those who complain they can't get anything done with kids underfoot......

Let them think they are helping , youd be amazed at how much that frees up your time

Doing dishes, give them their own wet cloth and let them "Wash" the stove and fridge while you wash dishes.

Laundry? Give them a washcloth or towel to fold while you fold the rest.

Dusting and vacuming, again give them a washrag, they will "help"

Cooking? Put them on the other end of the kitchen with a plastic bowl and plastic spoon and a pan , they can cook while you cook


This also gets them ready for "chores" later.

Ali helps me put cloths in the dryer ,pick up her toys,she helps me feed the dog and cat and she helps take dishes to the sink, She also tries to clean the kitty liter box........lol , I tell her how bout you give me an IOU insted and I will turn it in when your 11 and don't want to do it........hehe

If she can do these things at 15 months anyones kids can do it

I can clean with my kids home, I can't clean with the husband home. I don't have any tips I can think of. I just find it funny when I hear people say they can't clean with the kids around. I do it all the time, with or with our their help. So really don't see the big deal there. If I think of something I will post.
