Prioritizing time as parents
By Becky Shattuck, guest blogging from “I’m going to make it (after all)” (http://becky-shattuck.blogspot.com/)

It’s been said before. Parenting is both the hardest and most rewarding job in the world. I’m a stay at home mom. I’m with my kids pretty much all day long, every day, so I can attest to that personally.

Little kids need a lot of attention. Actually, that doesn’t quite sum it up enough. Little kids not only need a lot of attention, they need physical help with almost everything they do. Even after they’re potty trained, they need help getting onto the toilet and wiping their behinds. Even when they can crawl up into their car seats themselves, they need your assistance getting the straps in place and the buckles properly snapped. The job is very demanding.

When my husband gets home from work for the day, I usually hand him the baby. I just need a few minutes without an extra 20 pounds on my hip—you know? Just a little physical space. What about him, though? When does my husband get some free time?

Budgeting time for everything is a real challenge. We love the kids, but we also need time to ourselves, and we need time as a couple. We’d like time with friends and time for hobbies. Let’s not forget time to clean the house and get things done! There just aren’t enough hours in the day.

I’m not going to pretend that I have the solution for everyone’s time budgeting woes, but I am here to present a few tips to lighten your load and hopefully make things a little easier.

This was just a preview of Becky's helpful article.  Read the rest at our blog!
