You know, of all the daily tasks I do, the task of mopping the floor is one of the chores that gets done the least. Okay let’s be honest, I don’t mop my floor nearly enough, maybe once a month (and that is pushing it, it’s probably more like every two months!) And I hate having a scummy dirty floor, life just feels so much nicer when the baby (who makes most of the gooey messes on the floor), isn’t scooting about in her own goo.
So recently I’ve discovered that if I give the kids two wash cloths with warm soapy water on them, when they scrub the floor together, they can do a pretty good job and they do it pretty quick.
Is it done how I would do it myself? No. Is that okay? YES! It looks a whole lot better than if I hadn’t done it myself :)
I’m so glad that my kids are capable of doing these chores now, even though they still have to be reminded often while they are cleaning, they are becoming quite the little workers and I’m so proud of them!! Thanks guys for a good looking floor!!
Okay, notice Cait here? This is usually how she cleans. Not much cleaning, much more dancing and playing but at least she’s cute :)
