Everyone has to clean right?
And with kids around, you have to clean often. Like sometimes right after you finish cleaning you have to clean again.
It must be one of Murphy’s Laws that as soon as mom is done sweeping one of the kids will spill cereal all over the kitchen floor.
I have to say, I am pretty thankful for my dog when it comes to post meal clean up. He saves me a good amount of sweeping every time.
I am also lucky in that our Little Monster is still young enough where helping mommy with chores is fun and old enough to actually be of help. Cuddle Bug is at an age where he wants to help; but isn’t really able to be all that helpful.
To make it more interesting for our Monster, this mommy has made sweeping into a game. And all you need for this game is some masking tape and a broom!
All I do is tape the outline of a shape on the floor and tell her to sweep the dirt into the shape. Easy!
Sometimes I do more than one shape and we learn about shapes while we sweep.
Little Monster gets a huge kick out of this! And it’s so easy to set up! HUGE perk for this mommy.
Who says chores can’t be fun?!
Well, there you have it, it’s been just another Manic Mom-day!
