I have four kids too (7,5,3 & 17 months) and I know life is hectic. When I had my first two babies and didn’t have school commitments I did music class, two playgroups and other activities. I love to go out and do things, but in the last year i’ve realised that I don’t need to do all these things. My kids are happy to play at home, and I got to one playgroup a week. I’ve found that managing the house is so much easier, I have time to vacuum when it needs it and make time to do the washing!
I now do things that i enjoy and having a tidy, managable house makes a great difference to my mental health!
I also turn off the ipad and computer to deter me from the temptation of sitting around all day!
