I think it's cute. I know one Josie who is 5 -- her's is short for josephine though they always knew they were going to call her josie.
I made crocheted washable covers for my swiffer. I've been very happy with them.
I'd recommned "learning all the time" by John Holt as a good book to peruse. If you want a more "formal" type of program -- Five in a row worked great for us at that age. Only takes a short time each day, but adds a small bit of structure to your learning (if you are looking for that). Plus what Lillian said -- her advice is always good.
It gets much easier in many ways when your kids get older, and can do more for themselves. Just relax and try to enjoy the ride for now.
