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

Either use the laptop or get on whenever Ethan's playing quietly and Asher is napping or playing. I do the housework while Ethan's napping or eating or after he's down for the night.

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.

David usually wants to play by himself during the day so when we wake up I get on. And while Katelynn is sleeping. I clean while the kids are sleeping.

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
