I want to hear from both..



My 4yos preschool had a tuition increase (890/mo) and we can't afford to send him anymore. I have both kids home 24/7 now, ages 4 and 11 months. I clean, cook, take care of the kids, work from home and DH works A LOT! I have a 2400sf home with 3.5 baths. No matter what I do I can not find time to get this house clean to where I don't have to stress about it... I am constantly on the edge with my 4yo. I am really trying hard not to yell but he drives me crazy! I don't know what to do to make my life run smoother and to make my kids happier...



Any thoughts or suggestions from sahm or wahms that would be great! I am at my wits ends today!!

Maybe you can pay someone to come in once a week to do a deep clean on your house? Use some of the money you were paying on daycare for housekeeping.

:!: or you could have him help you with some of the cleaning. I would rather pay someone else to do it though. My mom has a lady come in a few times a month to deep clean the whole house and it has been so helpful because of her busy schedule.

I had my DH help me get thevwhole house spotless during his vaca last week and then I made myself a week long cleaning routine.ike mopping on Wednesday's and vacuuming on Monday's thursdays and Saturday's if it needs it. Two loads of laundry evey other day. Stuff like that. And i pick up as I All day everyday. It's a lot easier to keep up this way and I'm home with my 6year old and 2 yer old and 22 weeks with my third.

I was working full time, Ive been at home for the last 10 months. I have a 3 year old and one on the oven.



When I return to work, I am paying someone to come clean at least once a week, to do the deep cleaning.



My son cleans his play room and SO has become great about knowing what to do to get shit done around the house.



IF you dont hire help, get a schedule. Like mondays you do bathrooms, Tuesday and Friday laundry, something like that.
