I know my wife needs her mom time, or things won’t go as smoothly as they
should. My solution to this is to schedule to take over with the kids 3 times a week.
I get together with the kids and we vote on what to do a week prior. Whatever we
end up doing, we make sure to let mom be alone and in peace. We even take over
dinner and clean up for those days. Since doing this there is tons less chaos in
the home and we are all happier. My wife is less stressed and is very noticeably more
radiant and happier.
