Finding balance when the kids are gone



The boys are going to spend the day with my Mom. I think they’re getting picked up just before lunch. Lizze and I have no plans, aside from grocery shopping today. 

I do want to try and get some things done around the house. Frankly, thays only ever really possible when the kids are not home. At the same time, not resting during the time away from the kids can be a mistake. 

The challenge is finding a balance that works, without tipping the scales to one side or the other.

I want to make sure I understand this…and this isn’t meant necesarily as a criticism, but for further clarification.

Are you saying that your kids require so much oversight that you can literally do nothing but watch them when they are home? If that is the case, I have misread many other posts. I assumed they were high functioning and could be left to their own devices for a certain period of time.

I’m curious… why can’t you clean the kitchen/bathroom or do laundry if the boys are home?
