A Day in the Life of a WAHM

You got a busy day there! I'm still trying to figure one out for myself. I come up with a schedule but don't seem to stick with it!

Hi Minoaka, thanks for commenting. Schedule's can be tricky for sure! You've got a little one, so I'm sure your days are jam-packed too and it's probably easier to go with the flow of each day.
I remember those days of naps and diapers and yummy babyiness fondly. Enjoy them and be kind and forgiving to yourself. :)

Hi! I'm a brand new wahm as of 4mos ago and I'm still finding a hard time to discipline myself at times. I get caught up in housework and my tween and teen girls and the next thing you know the day has gone by. The other hard part is having hubby working from home also enjoying spending time with him because that was hard to do when working outside the home. I definitely need to schedule my day. If I don't work the bills don't get paid. Thanks for sharing. I'm your new follower. Wish me good luck.
