Head to work until 430/5pm then pick them up from childcare and school and start getting them to their sports and other activities. My husband works FT too but I’m the breadwinner and the do-er, he’s not lazy but not overly helpful either so I beat the load. I love my job, I love that my kids see me work. I walk every morning and every night and every moment I’m at home I’m doing stuff. Mostly it’s stuff that I’d don’t love but I know I have to do (housework etc) other times it’s playing with the kids, helping them with whatever they need a hand with and doing other cool stuff. I feel like my life is really busy, my ‘me time’ I spend walking. It’s good for my mental health and my physical health and without it I’d go crazy.

First thing I usually do is go to the toilet in peace. No fighting, no “mum, where’s my?” Just sitting and enjoying the quiet. Then some house work, spend some time with my baby, lunch, get dinner prepped and pick up kids. Weekends I do all my chores before they wake up so I can make sure they do their chores before we go anywhere.

Go straight to work - all day - until I have to go pick them up again. I wish I could go for coffee with my friends but I've got bills....

Maybe she likes working. Being a SAHM isn’t for everyone. I found it quite miserable and it was terrible for my self esteem. Most of us (I hope) choose our partners for love, knowing we’ll do our best to support each other. Not hunt someone with enough money so we can stay home for the rest of our lives.

I don’t really understand this - I work and doing the laundry is the easiest chore. One load when you wake up - get ready for work, get breakfasts - do another load hang out clothes - a couple of loads after work, hang some put others in dryer - repeat - repeat

Hey, I find keeping up with washing incredibly difficult too! 😔

On the 3 days I get, I run errands, appointments (dentist next week!) clean, manage absolutely everything family & child related, including finances, NDIS & even maintenance. It's all on me as DH works long hours.

On my couple of hours free I watch tv shows no one else likes, read a book & occasionally enjoy my fave gourmet yoghurt without someone saying 'can I have one, mummy?', then wasting it.

I'll return to work next year & will get no free time whatsoever, so I'm enjoying any down time I can get now.

Come home and put some washing on, chill with a coffee and spend the day relaxing. Youngest is at day care 2 days a week so they're my days off and I love them. Today I went fishing lol. Also usually dress up for hubby to come home on his lunch break for a quickie 😂. When the youngest is home and the older kids are at school (they get on the bus around 8) we go back to bed for another hour, cuddle and watch something on netflix then get up and vacuum and wash dishes and clothes, have some breaky then out and play with the dogs and clean their yards, back inside around lunch time, make some lunch, then organise something for me and youngest to do until we have to pick the older 2 up at 3.30.
