The 2011 Mom: Balancing household, hubby and the little ones

Our guests admit they’re all struggling to find balance in their lives. Some of our secrets to getting work and household stuff done:

  • Paying for someone to help us with household duties and organizing
  • Getting work done in small time increments
  • Don’t sweat the “small stuff” like cleaning the back of the refigerator

Diane says some things don’t get done. She “wings it” and prioritizes so she can spend time with her husband and son. Maran agreed with Diane and said some things didn’t get done.

Karen is hiring a professional organizer and realizing she can’t do everything on her own. She’s also considering hiring a cleaning service since her new job also means a longer commute. Karen recommends hiring people to help you.

I struggle as a stay at home mom to get work done before my husband goes to work or on weekends when my husband is home. I work in increments, even if it’s 10 minutes of work.

  1. I dont think I have a plan. I just do things as the day goes by. And when my husband is off I get more done while he pays attention to her.
    I have a little disorder because I have to clean things myself. If I leave to my husband to help its never the way I like it and I know that bad. I always have to have things in a place and in order,I have always been this way but since she has come along I see things slowing falling by the waist side. I have to put things in order from least to most important.
