A large part of our family life is shouting things/desperately trying to hear what is being shouted up and down the staircase while one or both children has a meltdown. I have no idea what people with big houses do!
Also I’m not sure how much it’s pandemic related or how much it just is the reality of living with two small children, but it is probably not ideal that my idea of bliss at the moment is being able to do the dishes in peace whilst watching trashy TV (at the moment I’m re-watching the entirety of Grey’s Anatomy. It is my Everest to complete this task).
Since this conversation my husband and I have implemented a strict Dishwashing /Bath and getting ready for bed rotation schedule so that neither of us feels like we are missing out on the zen of dishwashing!
