Cleaning, such a dreadful chore isn’t it? Us moms don’t like to see our children growing up, but there is some benefit to them getting older. They can start doing some household chores. This summer I have gotten sick and tired cleaning up after everyone and decided it was past time they started helping me out. If there is one thing to know about me it’s that I like to be organized and have a game plan for everything!! That includes my children doing chores and the cleaning.
I have found this printable to be pretty hand. It helps me keep track of what still needs to be done around the house for the week and who was supposed to do what. Every week I print this off and stick it on the fridge. Having it in plain site not only helps me remember to do something but it also helps remind my kids. Kids still need to be kids, so I don’t set a certain date they do things. I just expect it to get done sometime during the week. This may not be the best plan of action, but it helps keeping the household chores in control and me from going nuts!!
