I feel so overwhelmed by housekeeping these days that I just don't do much of it. How do I get the kids to help more and make it enjoyable? I need daily and weekly breakdowns of chores. It's just that people are so tired or uncooperative and I don't like to feel like I'm nagging or dragging along those who don't want to cooperate.
Maybe I should just start small. Daily: pick up your clothes.
Weekly: 8 year old could do x, 5 year old could do y. Dh could do z.
FlyLady is great but I find even her small daily chores are too much for me. Working FTOH and wrangling the three kiddos is very exhausting. Still, I want our home to be cleaner. Our kids comment on it.
I also feel like decluttering is a constant, never-ending mountain that I can barely chip away at.
Did I mention I feel overwhelmed? :o)
Any suggestions, ideas or encouragement are appreciated. Thanks in advance Mamas!!
