My Worked For Me Wednesday tip on cleaning is how I manage to clean with my 1 and 3 year old. I am a strong believer in not waiting to clean until the kids are asleep. That is MY time. I also think it is very important for kids to see you cleaning and know the hard work that goes into maintaining (or attempting) your household. My kids get a kick out of doing Mommy stuff. The worst of my chores is cleaning the bathrooms. I clean the bathtub first, but don't rinse it. I take the hand held shower head and give it to my son to "squirt off all the bubbles." I keep the water the lowest stream I possibly can and have the shower head still work. I give my 1 year old a kid sized broom and have her sweep the floor while I do the sinks and toilet. The kids stay completely occupied, are a part of the cleaning without actually being a part of cleaning with chemicals and stuff, they learn the importance of contributing to the house, and I actually get chores done without pulling out my hair! It works for me.
