What do you find is the most difficult thing to get done with little ones around?
For me, it's most of the things that you want to get done around the house from dishes, laundry, cleaning, etc. In addition to writing, reading, even excersising. Not that I don't get it done, but I have to involve my 3yr. old in everything that I do, or else he does anything and everything to interrupt or stop me from what I'm doing. LOL! His world revolves aroung him right now, so I'm slowly introducing him to being his own individual and getting him to enjoy his time without me by his side all day...wish me luck!
Take a shower and wash hair. You can't include them in this activity...I think.
making my face up without looking like a clown!getting a bath,keeping a clean house,reading,that married thing!i have 6,
21,18,15,6,4,2 and i'm still sane,well somewhat
almost anything really, my most most difficult would be cooking dinner and ironing!
It's depend on how old they are. Mine they are 10 and 12. If they are in the house I cannot used my computer the time I want.
My little ones are 13 and 16...you would think that I would have all the time in the world to get all my work done now that they are older but man that's so not the case. I went from diaper changing to taxi driver, from playing peek-a-boo to breaking down Algebra problems, from cooking meals for me and my 2 daughters to becoming a chief for my 2 and 5 of their closest friends. Don't get me wrong- I enjoy every moment but there are times I'd like to clean my house and not have it trampled through by a ton off teenagers...lol
Both my kids are in school now, but the afternoons and evenings do tend to get a little chaotic around here sometimes. The most difficult thing for me right now is when I need to study (I'm in college) and TVs are going, kids are fighting and yelling, phone's ringing, etc. I'm very much looking forward to my husband coming back home in less than 2 weeks from Iraq so we can tag team it again.
I'm a stay at home grandma for now. Hard to think seriously when your kid says things like: Aaagh! Grandma! There's a dead killer whale in my water bottle!
?! Sure, I can LAUGH all day, but no thinking happens.
Any type of work -- I'd rather be actively playing or entertaining them.
My little ones are 14 and 19! The most difficult thing to get done is writing and finding time for us all to eat dinner together!
I did miss that when mine were young. I'd escape to my room some nights just so I could read a big girl book
Like you've already said -- read.
And write. Find it difficult to write a few paragraphs here and there and knit it all together so it makes sense and flows.
to go shopping when they are sleepy or sick. or even get any work done around the house when they cling to you.
For me it was cooking--I'd be holding a fussy newborn son, while my 15 month old daughter was hanging on my leg, wanting to be held...it happened every evening when I went into the kitchen...lol
Gosh, I miss those days...
There's an entire list of things that are difficult to do with a young one hanging onto your ankles but if I had to pick THE MOST DIFFICULT I would say it's going to the bathroom. I would have to run the water in the sink to be able to go. Silly, I know, but that's life
I would say to sit at the dinner table. I don't remember when last time i ate in peace )Even after having her dinner my 16 months old, must try everything on my plate and steal all cucumbers from my salad.
With my grand daughter it's talking on the phone. She will start anything as soon as I say hello!
how about dads? i'm staying at home - temporarily hopefully.
and i CAN'T DO A FRIGGIN' THING while they're awake.
my little devils are a 9 month old daughter and a 3yr old son.
the only breaks i get are when i take a piss.
you women folk must have superpowers.
You are a lucky man-- many men don't know this because they have never had the experience.
Getting to do anything without being interrupted for a 'need', is an experience some mothers have never known. My mom used to tell me "It is time to go out in the backyard and play". I would have rather stayed in with her, to see what she was doing... but "it was time", so I went.
A song was done bout that Mr. Mom , nice one too.
Love your honesty Jonathanacosta! Women have to sit down to piss, which usually takes at least a few seconds longer than men standing to piss. These few extra seconds of rest and escape from our little ones is the secret to our superpowers.
lifting things, moving things, and hard cleaning...I am physically disabled and can not do any of these things anymore, it hurts me inside , but I only have one child, a teenager, who will help if she has too.... I would still be on a payroll if I could be .
When my kids were small, the greatest fear I had was using the iron when they were awake. (That meant I had a GREAT excuse not to iron!) I'm now looking for another excuse as they are both at college now.....I'll think of something! Just give me time!
Anything in the kitchen, my daughter's one and she throws a tantrum whenever i go in there as there's a child gate across the door so she can't come in.
I salute any stay at home mom! If you can afford to stay home with your kids more power to ya! It is one tuff job!! But rewarding......
I think you can do most things, apart from maybe have a shower - it's just that everything takes about 10 times longer so you will not achieve very much! For me the thing I find the hardest is probably helping my older child with homework, as the little one keeps butting it and concentration is difficult.

Do you think stay at home moms are "lazy"?Watching Anderson right now, this is apparently a huge debate. If I have the financial means, I want to be home with the baby, and my boyfriend supports this decision. It's not because I don't want to work or think I shouldn't, I just want the...

Should stay-at-home moms be given a salary in return for their work?Periodically, there are debates about whether to compensate stay-at-home moms for their work in caring for their children and their home. What do you think about this idea?

Lot of people do not agree to involve in a relationship, the real relationship that he/she will continue. They show lots of causes like earning, establishment, adjustment etc. But human being need relation that is always true. Why society discourage to start early?

Is there a stigma to being a stay at home mom?Heard some of this on talk radio (bad for my health I know but I'm addicted) yesterday. Does being a stay at home mom imply to others that you are somehow less intellectual than a working mother? If so why?
