I just got a new job (my old job was slightly less hours) and have been working 37 hrs a week, 11 hr shifts on tuesday and wednesday and it's really been messing with me, lol. I clean all weekend though so I only have to deal with dishes during the week. And DH puts LO to bed 2 nights during the week and has started cooking at least one night a week, that's a big help! DH works 34 hrs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

I have a huge respect for working mamas. You are all amazing. I may complain about being a SAHM but it has got to be hard to be a working mama and do what I do on a daily basis but in a short time. I was a working mama for the first little bit of her life and it was so hard.

Why thanks. I work 9 hour days, except Thursdays (my half days). And I'm in the process of starting school full time again. I have two kids. My day just gets busier when I get home lol

Quoting Just Ames:" You just have to wake up at the ass crack of dawn and make sure you have a meal plan for the week, lol. ... [snip!] ... lol. Oh and clean like a crazy woman every weekend. I'm finding all this hard being so big and pregnant but not much longer :)"


You get a free pass!



I meal plan, but my cleaning is all dedicated during the week (which would make sense, since I'm home.) Mondays just totally wipe me out. Being attacked by 15-20 toddlers every Monday for 7.5 hours is exhausting. I'm worthless after I'm done.

Quoting Just Ames:" Unfortunately, I don't. Shit still needs to get done :x By saying I'm finding it hard means I am barely making it, lmao. "

:lol:




We're super busy during the week, so I definitely understand time management/etc. But all of our extras are my choice, and don't totally drain me. I can't imagine always feeling this emotionally drained during the day.



Granted, most women don't work WITH their children clinging to their legs, so I'm guessing you're a little more excited to see your kids by the end of the day than what I am on Monday evenings to bring mine home with me. :wink:

You are so sweet, Dee! And I agree!



On the upside, working moms get a break from their kids and I envy that :lol:

Yes, it is really nice not being with an argumentative 3 year old all day every day, lol.

In a few years my kids will be in different classrooms each Monday, and I'll get to just enjoy all of the other little kids. I'm excited. :) Until then, I'll continue trying to teach the others as one of mine clings to my leg for dear life. :lol:

I.could NOT do it. I'm so freaking sleepy and I haven't even.done much today. I woke up, fed LO some breakfast. Did a little power cleaning. Went to a WIC appointment. Came home and just hung out with LO. Fed LO dinner, bathed her and just got her to bed. And I'm seriously pooped. Not looking forward to working in a few months, but it has to be done
