Cleaning/Organizing with two small kids, tips???
I have a five year old and an eighteen month old who tears through the house daily. I am barely keeping my head above water as far as cleaning, and all the organizing I did when my 18 month old DS was tiny needs to be done again. I understand that with two small kids, it's not going to be perfect, but I would like to improve the current state of things. I work 9am-1pm (DH is home during these hours) and then I come home and DH goes to work. I have no one to watch the kids while I attempt to get things done. DD is a great babysitter, but only for short periods of supervised time. I hate to use the TV as a babysitter, but sometimes I'm forced to babygate the two of them in the living room while I try to whip through the rest house. I've thought about a mother's helper, has anyone tried this? My DD loves to help with chores and does a great job, it's the DS who is quite the terror right now. Suggestions????????????
