I'm the only human here this week and it's taking all I've got to deal with the cat, dishes, broken dishwasher, food, and mail. I cant imagine throwing in a child or 2 into the mix. If I had them I'd makee them Natalie's responsibility. :beard:

With children, you really have no choice.

What Jay said. Sometimes you gotta choose between doing dishes, or leaving them till morning so you can help on an art project. And when they're old enough to talk back, they're old enough to help with said dishes ;)

Which is often a wise choice as tiedyesky pointed out they can make for good slave labor, although not cheap.

You just make it work and lean on your spouse for sanity and fellatio.

Lots of caffeine, very little sleep, and a deep understanding of priorities. It's not always easy, fo sho.

the trick is to attatch a weekly bill for YOUR services when they ask for their allowance. Personally, i owned them after "washing your socks and underwear" and they knew it ;)

It definitely doesn't all get done- you have to prioritize what's important and be okay with the fact that you can't do everything you want. And you have to be able to take good care of yourself or at some point it all goes to shit. Personally I'm still pulling for another 8 hours added to each day so I can do all of the things I want- do I talk to my union rep about that?
