Stress O'Clock
Stress O'Clock for the average SAHM is 11:56 AM. Right as you realize it's time to make lunch for your little one at home. I'm guessing this is also the same time you see your older kid's lunch still sitting on the counter, after he forgot to bring it to school.

Now that we've fully settled in to our fall routines … check that, who am I kidding? The first week we were perfectly planned with lunches made the night before, breakfast cereal and bowls laid out on the kitchen table, and the day's clothes waiting by the dresser. The first week of school went like clockwork. Then a weekend got us back to our lazy summer routine, and, to borrow a blog name, our place has been 'casa de chaos' ever since. Were you able to stick to your plan or have you digressed into a morning routine filled with stress? A survey has found the average mother feels stressed at least FIVE times a day while 14% feel stressed at least 10 times a day. You'll never guess who brings the most frustration to the home. Ugh. Click through to find the most stressful times of day and situations every parent has to deal with. -By Buzz Bishop
