"Lindsey, How do you do it all???"
That is a great question! I am a wife and a mom of two and I watch 1 - 2 kids daily. My days are busy but I would not have it any other way... I enjoy it!!!! :)
It is all about planning. It is important to have the day planned out. I have a rough schedule for the kids and I for EVERYDAY!!!! :) Meals are tentatively planned out and all the ingredients are in the fridge.
I go to the store weekly, mostly Saturdays. I wash all the groceries so they are GRAB ready! We wash all our produce ORGANIC or not in Hydrogen Peroxide. 1/4 cup into a 1/2 sink of water. I let some things soak longer and other just a quick rinse. Sundays, when I remember, I prepare the vegetables. I will peel and cut and chop vegetables. That way they are snack (and GRAB) ready! No washing or peeling just go! We stay busy throughout the week so it is important to be prepared! :)
As for cleaning, I clean as I go with one big clean on Saturday/Sunday. The toy room/living room is picked up several times a day but at the end of the day is cleaned. I vacuum weekly, not daily. Kitchen is cleaned a lot! I clean the kitchen 3x a day. When you clean as you go the big clean day comes around there isn't much to do. I clean the bathrooms 2x a week and deep clean once.
Home cooked meals are important to us and a picked up (noticed I didn't say clean) house is too! You find a way to do it when it is important! I try to not do anything once the boys are in bed. I like that time to be hubby and my time.

Spaghetti Squash with ground venison and vegetables.
I made one Spaghetti Squash and spread it out! Bake Spaghetti Squash at 375 for an hour. I then saute mine to make the "noodles" softer.
