For moms in countries where a nanny is a rarity, I am sure we all have stories to share on how we cope up with household chores and taking care of our kids.
This is how I get things done:
Kids (usually my Firstborn has the say) choose whether they watch TV or play computer while Mommy prepares dinner. Firstborn chose playing in the computer tonight. Secondborn thought he was also playing. To stop the crying, I gave him his own mouse to play with so he felt he was also controlling the movements in the video game:-).
The two kids continue playing right after dinner… in the bath tub. They both love it so I don’t hear any protests whenever I announce “Bath time. To the tub now.” I can finish washing the dishes and cleaning the mess made during dinner.
How do you get things done?
