ONE-ON-ONE TIME WITH KIDS AND SPOUSE
Make sure to focus and find daily time to have one-on-one time with each of my kids and my husband.
Kids know when it's their day, and they get a lot of special privileges on that day. They get to choose their seat in the car, what music we listen to, what plate they have at dinner, and they get to say the prayer at the meals.. Most importantly, they get 15 minutes of alone time at night. This may be with me, with me and dad, or maybe just dad, depending on what the schedule is. This is a time where we just really connect. We may do a puzzle together, watch a show, I may paint the girls' nails, or we just hang out.
Hire a babysitter to drive your kids around or play with them so that you can get some work done. If you have the means, do that.Aside from that, don't be afraid to ask your own family for help! As moms, we often feel like the weight of our family and work is all on our shoulders. But it doesn't have to be! Your kids are fully capable of packing their own lunches, cleaning their own rooms, even doing their own laundry.
