I was sitting here thinking about how hected my day is. I was wondering if I was the only one. I have a full time job, go to school 3 days out the week and have 2 kids, ages 4 and 1. Also a bf that works from 11p-7a. So this is how my day usually goes.

I get up at about 6 no later then 6:10. Try to be out the bathroom within 15 minutes of doing that. When I get out I wake up my 4 year old to go in and start getting ready. While she is in the bathroom, I get her breakfast ready and set it out for her and turn on cartoons. After she gets out the bathroom she has about 15 minutes to eat her breakfast before she has to get ready. In the mean time I am getting myself together and about to get my 1 year old ready. By 6:45 I have to be sitting down doing my 4 year olds hair. We have to be out the house no later then 7:10. Drop my 1 year old to grandma's house which is 15 minutes away. Then take another 20 minute drive to my 4 year olds school. She has to be to school by 7:45. Then go to work by 8:30. Which isn't a big problem seeing how my job is about 10 minutes away. At 5 I am running out the door to get my 4 year old and get to school by 6. Classes over at 8:50. Rush home to get my 4 year old in the tub and in bed, start dinner. Hoping my bf has our one year old home by now and in her pj's. Cook dinner spend about an hour with him before he goes to work. Get out clothes out and try to be in bed by 11:30. Is any one else life more hected then mines?

My day isn't as hectic now that I am a sahm. I attended college last semester and it was a nightmare. I have 6 kids....3 of those are old enough to get themselves ready but the youngest 3 I had to either assist or get them ready all together. So I was up at 4 am to get dh's breakfast ready and pack his lunch. Go to bathroom and puke (preg) try to go back to sleep after dh leaves at 5am and back up at 6am to get kids up and ready. Puke again. Get older kids on bus by 7:35 am then drive like a maniac to get youngest to daycare and to my first class by 8am. First class was from 8-9:45. Second class from 10:50-12:10 and the last from 1:20-3:40. During the in between times I squeezed in studying, snacking, lunch and puking. Then I raced home just in time for the bus to arrive at 4pm and started dinner for the evening. Puke some more. Go get youngest at daycare by 5:30pm, get back home, do housework, homework (mine), help kids with homework, shower, go to bed...preferably by no later than 8pm as I was and still am exhausted by then. As I said since I'm not going to school this semester it's not as hectic, but I still stay busy with a little one at home.
