I figured it out! At last I have the answer. I discovered the secret to managing a household, cleaning, keeping up with laundry, and nutritiously feeding and taking care of four children under four.
It’s simpler than I thought: You just have to wake up early, and not sit down or stop working for one second the entire day (including while nursing – this will not work without a sling). Multitask at all times.
Then you, too, can have a clean house and four happy, well fed children!
(Disclaimer: this plan will not, however, prevent Miriam from writing with pen on the computer monitor; Jireh from dumping out your new lotion somewhere yet to be determined; or Soren from getting into your thread spools and bobbins.)
I think I need a long, hot bath…
