How do you do the things you do . . . with Kids?
The truth of the matter is that we have awesome kids . . . who are use to W.A.P.P. (Wildly Ambitious Parent Projects). In reality, our ability to get house projects done is based on 3 principles:
1. The absurd notion that we can actually tackle these projects with 3 small ones!!!
2. The divide and conquer principle -- one parent works, the other herds kids.
3. The play hard and work hard principle-- by scheduling a good healthy dose of play each day, the girls seem to let us alone during projects. (Okay, so we are more prone to reminding them about the playtime vs worktime segments without guilt).
Here is a good picture example of our work & kids philosphies:
