Dear Holly,
I am at a loss on how to implement the mother’s rule in my life. I work outside of the home 5 days a week ( 8am – 5pm). On a work day – I only get to see my children ( a pre-schooler , a toddler and a baby ) between 6pm and 7pm before they are ready for bed and most weekends I am home full time unless I have to do errands ( on which I take my children ). But I am always exhausted – on the verge of tears some days … My husband pitches in when he can but he also works full time and he is in the final year of his doctoral studies . I have a nanny but its like the moment I walk in the door everyone just wants me to do multiple things …
