Set Your Priorities, Put Your Kids First?

I have a lot to do in very little time. I’m told to prioritize things but my problem with prioritizing is that I am not able to figure out what to put at the very top. I get stuck at the very first level trying to figure out what is most important.
Now since I’m a mom I’m expected to put my kids at the top. But the problem with that is when I put my kids first, there is nothing left for anything else. Their needs are so never-ending that they can and will consume every minute you have. I admit that is also partly because of my own expectations of parenting.
I’m starting to think I should do things differently. Maybe put my kids last.
I’m not saying last of my worries… more like last of my priorities.
Maybe it’s time I taught them more independence.
