I get paid really well for raising three kids. Family Tax Benefit is pretty nice, considering all the hard work I do.

Just got me thinking about my typical day

7am wake up
7.15 sneak in a coffee and Lindaland
7.30-8.00 Babies and kids wake up
Change 3 Nappies (diapers) before 8am... (sometimes 2 poos)
8.30 Feed all five of us.
8.45 Do the dishes (usually left from night before- I don't have a dishwasher)
9.00 Bath or shower whoever smells the worst.
9.15 All kids are clean, dressed and fed, and are being occupied by some type of mindless entertainment.
9.30 Husband off to work or still in bed if day off.
9.30 I have a shower and get dressed and try to look like I have the time to do that.
10.00 Vaccum the floor (done twice a day), do a load of washing (nearly everyday)
10.45 Morning tea, biscuits, fruit and water all round.
11.15 Get ready to take my eldest to preschool.
11.30 Shuffle them all out the door, a baby on each hip, everything I need stuffed into a pockets.
12.00 Return from preschool, unpack the babies and put them on the floor.
12.15 Feed three of us for lunch. Babies get tired and have a nap.
12.30 Another coffee or iced tea and go on Lindaland and Facebook for as long as I can. Sometimes I read/ or hang out the washing.
1.30 Babies still asleep hopefully so I get out my diary, see what bills need to be paid, make relevant phonecalls, be a business manager for a while.
3.00 Babies both awake and hungry, they are fed and played with, sang to, story time, whatever.
3.30 Get ready to pick up my eldest from preschoool.
Pack everyone into the car.
4.00 Pick up eldest go to my grandparents house and, put baby in bounce, middle one in highchair, eldest to hang out with grandma and I run errands and do chores for them.
6.00 Dinner time, I go make some type of dinner, really healthy as possible. Everyone eats. Vacuum floor.
6-7pm (crazy hour- bed time routine)
7.00 Babies are ready for bed and they fall asleep.
7.30 Eldest wants attention and we play and chat and cuddle until Husband gets home at 8.30 pm.
8.30 Eldest in Bed asleep and happy.
8.35 I rush off to the gym and work out for an hour.
9.30 Kiss and smooch with Husband and talk about the day and how much we look forward to his next day off (which is more than he works, 3 days on and 4 days off. We have the same routine on his days off but he helps me do everything- we do it together).
9.45 Have a beer and undo my hardwork at the gym! nah... its really nice and I earned it. See what needs to be done in the house since we have no one to help us. I recently painted two bedrooms and retiled the floor.
If nothing to 'do'. we watch a movie, talk, read together, do zen movements together or make love.
11.30 pm... In bed, pass out but not before I check Lindaland and facebook lol... wake up at 7am.

Right now it's 2.47 pm, one baby is asleep the other is just awake and I just finished todays diary and businessy stuff, I usually sneak in LL.

I'm totally priceless.

Friends and family just have to fit in to that... somewhere... like they can just come and join in. Have wine time over lunch while mopping the floors. I'm so much fun!

Right now I'm studying to be an elementary school teacher. I might go back to school somewhere down the road to become a professor, but not before I take a very long break. Lol.

I think K-2 is the best age...before they become rebellious.

Haha! That is what I've heard as well. I've worked with pre-school, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th so far. My favorite is 2nd.

Yep, me too. I was majoring in education for a while and wanted to teach second grade. Most kids that age have no good male role models, and most early childhood teachers are female.

Ya, that is so true. It's very rare that I see any male teachers in elementary school. Did you get a degree in education? Or were you just studying it?

I disagreed with the ADHD medication bandwagon all of the future teachers were jumping on, so I changed my major.

Oh ya I definitely don't blame you there. Thankfully it has seemed to cool down now. The standardized testing is another issue. At least where I live :/.

I finished my first degree in Computer Science- Game Development 3 yrs ago, in 2008.

During my last year I was an intern managing some of the web sites for Department Of National Defense, the Canadian equivalent of Department of Defense.

I was offered to be permanent, but I was young and wanted to still have some control on my destiny and what I wanted to do in my life.

It just wasn't my type of job and environment. Although, I still get a call once and a while and work from term to term.

I then decided it would be better to try for a masters or a second major, given my age I can still earn another degree and plus its getting harder to "stand out in the crowd".

Now I'm completing a second Major in Geomatics. Which I like to call "Computerized Geology".

I'm still on the database so I work term to term for different departments, between school. There really is a demand for web projects almost anywhere right now + mobile apps right now.

So far I've worked for 3 different government departments in Canada.

You'll hear people say people in government jobs don't do much or don't work hard my answer to that is yes and no.

Contractors work hard and deliver, keep in mind most contractors are also competing for jobs in both the public/private sector.

So they have to have the skill set to compete.

Some of the permanent workers, I say some not all have become "insolated" from the outside world so they become less efficient.

Paralegal and bored to bits.

I also have a degree in PT/massage therapy, but there are no jobs here for that and I am paid well for what I do now.

I hope to eventually turn all my artistic endeavors into something someday... I LOVE DIY and trash to treasure type stuff. If I could be in the van with the American Pickers, that would be my dream job!!
