Keeping Up

Keeping up with household chores when taking care of little ones can seem impossible at times (some times it IS impossible). You may feel like putting it off until the next day, next week or even next month simply because there is NO time (or energy!).

What you can try is making a "one-item-per-day" list. Don't feel like you have to clean the whole house while your child is napping... just clean ONE thing per day. For example, on Monday-clean the kitchen sink, Tuesday-the bathroom sink, Wednesday- the bath tub, and so on.

This way, you won't feel as overwhelmed taking on the task of cleaning... AND you will have cleaned at least one thing at the end of the day! What an accomplishment!!
