Since we decided not to hire a stay in helper anymore, I have been juggling my schedule daily. I wanted to do my house hold chores but still be able to spend time with my kids intentionally. I want to continue our informal homeschooling and to spend time with them -- laughing, playing, enjoying them not just making them do the things they are supposed to be doing. I have learned that I CAN NOT do everything in one day. So I decided to divide the house hold chores according to its importance and assign chores per day.
There is a time for everything. I want to prioritize having time with my kids rather than being able to do all the chores everyday. The kids grow up so fast... if I don't set my priorities straight, even if I am a Stay At Home Mom, I might miss them...
Am I making any sense?
