Watching TV and seeing shows like Perfect Housewife or SuperNanny often makes me wonder if I should try harder, spend more time with my boys. Perhaps I should clean the house or iron the clothes that are sitting in that basket?
There's always something for a mum to be doing; cleaning, playing with the children, visiting family. And it's never ending. As the saying goes,
'A mother's work is never done'.
I've been a stay-at-home mum for nearly 8 years and I haven't managed to have one single day where I didn't have to do some kind of chore. My daily life is filled with chores. I do my best to get the most important jobs done and get some time to spend with the children. I make sure they are fed and watered and I entertain them, even if that means my eldest playing on the Xbox 360 for a while.
