I'm a single mummy of two (a 4.5yr old and a 3yr old) working full time. It's hard not being at home with them every single minute of every day, so instead I make sure I do school runs a few days a week and bedtimes and bathtime several nights a week. For the most part I manage everything from afar and then I O/D on them at weekends. They both thrive on routine and I've learnt how to adapt routines to make them work for us. I'm not an expert, I'm just another mummy and I've shared some things that have worked for me.
