Im really blessed in two things:
1) my houe is small, so what takes some people 20-30 mintues to do it takes me 5. I can pick up, sweep and mop my living/dining room in 10 minutes, 15 if the girls have their legos out and we have to get them from under the couch.
2) my family is so wonderful with helping. I tell my girls I need to do something and they are right there helping me. Like with the craft storage I pulled everything down, my oldest brought it to the table, I sorted all of it while my oldest put it in containers then my oldest brought it back to the closet while I put it away.. Then she asked if there was something else we could go through
I have wonderful children who seem to think cleaning is fun.. No clue why but I encourage that thought. They also love to wipe down the table and clean the windows for me. Its nice not to have to do everything myself, even if it isn't 100% how I would have done it they love it and its nice to see them perk up when DH mentions how clean something is and asks them if they helped.
Today I have two appointments (ultrasound and prenatal) and my DH has the day off
so Im not doing much. I did most of my household tasks for today yesterday so I can take it really easy today! My husband went through all his clothing this morning while I folded the laundry so our closet is almost clean! All I have to do is finish putting away the pack and play (thats been in there for 5 months for no reason!)
