Cara Fox to the rescue, as usual. I needed that little reminder today as I sit on my bed checking email and neglecting what I know is about to turn into a tower of laundry!


When I was in the middle of two under two I finally realized that I needed to give myself a break. I decided not to stress about the house and household things and just focus on taking care of the boys. My stress level went way down, I was able to slow down and enjoy my kids and the house didn't fall down around us. We didn't live in filth either- I found that when I wasn't stressfully trying to do it all I was actually able to keep up enough to get by with clean clothes and a semi clean house.


If you're at the point where you are completely overwhelmed, try to get out of the house...I know it's not easy with two under two, BUT, find a mall that has bathrooms/nursing rooms, etc. or a park, etc. A change of scenery can help you think a little more clearly about what needs to be done without it all staring you in the face. It also ensures that your house won't fall into further disarray since your bunch won't be there to mess it up.


It's helped me tremendously to make a laundry schedule. It keeps me from putting it off & makes it manageable. For instance:
Monday- sheets, towels
Tues- Hubbys scrubs
Wed- kids clothes
Thurs- parents clothes
Dish rags & such get washed as needed & diapers are every other day, but this keeps me on top of the heavy stuff...
Before I had a housekeeper I had a cleaning schedule too.


Thanks for the great advice. We are slowly getting back on track. It only takes such a small thing to knock you off course. I'm an organised person but I need to step my game up a bit. Laundry schedule to be planned shortly - Sunday night will be planning night (weeks outings, meals, chores etc). My husband has taken the kids out this afternoon so I can clear my head and think about what needs to be done - plus get some rest as we've had a lot of illness induced sleepless nights. Thanks again - I always know I can count on the baby bunchers.
