Hey Strong Independent Moms!!! I'm a single mom of a wonderful 3 year old. I work full time and commute about an hour from work daycare and home. By the time we are home lil man is starving. I try and get him snacks on the way but hub the time we get home he wants a real meal with pasta or rice. I usually meal prep on Sunday so lost of the week we just reheat the food or cook something fast to add to it. How do you find quality time with your lil ones during the week? How do you find time to do the chores around the house? He helps out as much as he can (brings his plates and drinks to the kitchen, picks up most of his toys) I usually end up falling asleep with him, even if I take an espresso at 7pm. Yes I take an espresso at 530am, 2pm and 7pm just to have enough energy. I'm guilty of just sitting on the couch sometimes with him while he just watches tv or plays on the iPad. I want to spend this time doing arts and learning crafts and educational stuff but I'm too tired. What time do you all get up? I get up by 5-5-30 and wake him up by 6, usually he wakes on his own at this time. How do you organize chores and to do list?
