Every day there is a lot to do. Getting the kids up and out, commuting to work, working, commuting home, making dinner, supervising homework, showers, stories and bedtime.
Now I am fortunate that my husband shares in a bunch of the work with me, so I am not in charge of everything, but there is still a lot to be done.
The commute each day is pretty draining because I get sick of driving, but the most draining part of the day is the evening tasks. Supervising my daughter’s bath and dealing with stories and bedtime is the biggest energy suck. This is probably because it is the end of the day, and I want to go to bed myself, but I know that bedtime is still an hour or two away.
However, I know as my daughter gets older she will need less supervision at bedtime and I will get more relaxing time in the evening.
For those of you wondering what’s entailed here is a nice little video.
