This is how I manage to have a full-time job with a big family, and go to school, and carve out time to take care of myself. I have a lot of help.
Martin and I would not be able to do what we do without Amanda. Miss C and the Middles also step up a lot to help.
But with Amanda, I know the kids will be fed and driven to music lessons on time, and that homework gets done. She sends reminders that we’re out of milk and cereal, and helps sort the recycling. These things may seem minor, but it makes a huge difference in my capacity to juggle everything else.
We are all in better shape with her here.
