How do you ladies juggle things like house work & children as well as coming on the computer?
Most days I dont go on the PC til the evening when Logans in bed & once Ive tried up whatever mess he's made lol.
But days like today where he's happy to just play quietly (coming back for a cuddle now & again) I tend to set the PC up & leave it running, allowing me to do things like dinner & tea, stil play with Logan & when I get the odd minute spare to come on online. I never do tidying til he's gone a bed because as fast as I tidy up he gets everything back out again.
I have a laptop now so it's in the kitchen and I'll check when I'm doing stuff in the kitchen. And then I go on while they're napping (between cleaning up/getting dinner started) and then when they're in bed for the night.
I have the laptop on most of the day and when i need to do something i just leave it running and come on when i can, usually when the girls are napping, sometimes when they are settled and playing. I dont bother doing much housework as it just gets trashed lol i do throw in laundry in the morning, and then do some washing up when they are napping! and then just do little bits here and there
I hop on the computer when they're sleeping. The cleaning I just end up doing all day. I try to keep up with it so it doesn't get too bad. I do the 'big' cleaning after they go to bed. Like the bathroom and floors.

I usually keep my the computer (laptop) running throughout the day and when I get a few minutes here and there I'll sit down to check facebook, email, JM etc. I am usually only on for a couple min at a time before I go off to start another project. When I was bf (up until about a month ago) that was the main time I was on the computer - I got good at one handed typing! When this LO comes I am guessing feeding time will be when I am usually on again.

Our computer is on all the time so i come on when i was time to myself, and I clean as I go so there's never ever a big mess here.Laundry gets done at night, folded first thing in the morning while the boys are having breakfast, lunches and stuff gets prepared when the kids are sleeping, I do dinner prep when Caden naps, Liam helps me
I usually get on whenever, my girls are very close and play together pretty well. Or they will watch a movie and just hang out while i'm on. Now that i'm pregnant i'm on the couch with the laptop so i'm off and on whenever. Plus DH does a lot of stuff to help out around the house
