Well, I have a back up sitter in case someone gets sick (which my kids rarely get sick because they never leave the house, thank God), my husband works third shift so no matter what someone will be home, and I don't work... My kids are toddlers and one is potty trained. As long as they are safe, clean, and fed I can do what I want (baby gate ;D! lol). If something doesn't get cleaned, it won't be the end of the world... My husband doesn't mind bathing the girls and cleaning up after dinner while I'm in school and he has volunteered to help with chores on his days off. I think that as long as we both work together, I'll be alright ... I'm just trying to stay positive and I posted in hopes that I'd get some advice or encouragement but I'm not gonna lie, that wasn't the most encouraging feedback... lol. It is helpful, because now I'm going to make 2 back up plans and sit down with my husband and make a chore chart lol.
We'll see what happens!!!
