My husband works 6 days a week and I work 3 days and have done since our daughter was 4 months old. She is now 11 months.
I start work early so I can come home early to pick her up from daycare and we have the same routine every day whether it is a working day or not.
As soon as I get home I put a load of washing on and unstack the dishwasher.
Each day at 5 she has her dinner and then plays with her toys while I get all her stuff ready for daycare the next day inc all her meals.
Hubby gets home at 5.30 and plays with her for half an hr and gets her ready for bath while I put dinner on - I finish the bath while hubby finishes dinner and then feed and bed for her at 7pm.
Then we both clean up the kitchen, stack the dishwasher, I do a load of folding clothes from the day before, ironing for 10 minutes ONLY and a tidy up of her toys.
We can then sit down for dinner together and everything is done! And it is only 7.30!
It can be done
BUT I do have a super husband who helps with everything.
I think the key is being super organised - but we make sure we don't miss out on spending time with our daughter otherwise the "guilts" start!
If we don't get everything done by the time she goes to bed we just have to do it straight after!
Having everything organised also means we get to spend time together relaxed at the end of the day which is essential.
We also have a cleaner once a fortnight to do the floors and bathroom so this helps a lot - otherwise hubby takes our girl out for a walk for an hr on a sunday and I did this when we couldnt afford a cleaner.
Hope this helps!
