I need some ideas
January 19, 2013 at 8:43 PM
How do you ladies clean the house with a toddler? Mine is two and if I'm trying to clean she's tearing something up in the other room or wreaking some other havoc. So other than waiting til she falls asleep what do you do?

    Save some special toys that DD is only allowed to play with during you cleaning time. Or let her "help" you give her a rag and let her lose as long as she stays in the same room as you.

    She usually helps for about two minutes before she's over it. I'm going to try setting an alarm. Ten minutes for cleaning together ten minutes playing together. It will take forever but something's gotta work right?

    Wait until she's napping or asleep. Toddlers have about a 5 minute attention span.

    Don't try to do it all in one day. Use 20 minutes max per day for chores and assign days like vacuum and floors day, bathroom day, etc. I do a load of laundry almost every day as the basket is full.

    We go to bed together at 10. I am at work when she naps.
