At the end of August, I’ll be going back to work full time for the first time since Ella was born, six years ago. It was too good of an offer to refuse – I’ll be teaching at the day school where Ella attends, and Zoe will attend in a year, which means that I will not only be able to take them to and from school every day, but will also get to see them every day for many years. I’m sure it’s the right choice, but I’m also mystified about how everything will get done around the house.
I know many of my readers are in homes with two working parents. Now I’m asking (begging, really) you to share your secrets. How do you and your spouse divide up your household/parenting chores? How do you get dinner on the table at a reasonable hour? How do you get ready for shabbat? Do you ever get any sleep?
Any and all tips will be greatly appreciated!
