The board is slow, so I'm going to throw something out.

I'm a planner as well....not to mention that my kids tend to plan things as well on days off of school with their friends.

Thanks! I am going to try that. It makes a lot of sense, but it never crossed my mind before.

"If you remove the sports/activities from the wohp time, the parent at home with the holidays/vacations/sick days and so forth....when then would the wohp find time?"

Why would they have to find time? They would have the same time off work that they would if they were doing sports events with their children. If the childrens sports/activities are done while they are at work then they can do other things with them when they are not at work.

First, let me state that I don't think "alone time" is some panacea or ultimate goal.

We've decided many times the same day (even later in the day) which one would take which child to a class or activity.

<So, you just find out when he doesn't get up and go to work?

Is this supposed to be related to the parent not knowing when their spouse is going to work and when they're planning to hang out at home?

We have never had that problem as we have had regular work schedules.
