I am starting a new cleaning project.
During my quiet time at night I am going to write a list of jobs I would like to get done around the house the next day. (I will post them here) If you want you can follow my list and get things done at your home as well or even make your own!
Today my list is....
scrub highchair and swing
scrub down table and chairs
I find that if I write a list I am more likely to accomplish my tasks. Usually I tidy the house constantly not feeling like I am getting anywhere. What are the kids going to be doing while I am cleaning? Why..cleaning with me of course! I will be writing what the kids have helped with and how they helped. I am going to make this fun! For ex. Amelie took a wisp broom and dust pan and cleaned under the table. They can help fold and put laundry away. Usually I don't want help because let's face it, it isn't help. It goes more slowly and more messy. I am just tired of the guilt when I am cleaning and the kids are watching TV and not doing something productive.
I am also going to list what natural cleaners I use and discover. For ex. When I clean the tub I will be using lemon juice and baking soda mixed together into a paste. I have not tried this yet but heard it works like a charm.
I encourage comments on how your children help you clean throughout your day. What did they learn? What natural cleaners do you use? What are your lists you have made?
Sound like a plan? I am really looking forward to getting things done and including my children.
This way we will have more time to do "school."
