There has been a few things I’ve found to be really helpful to keep the mom of these kids happy and a day thats A. more productive for me and B. passes time so I not only don’t get bored but also so the kids know I will not always becken their every need.
First of all, they have a lot of toys… and their rooms somtimes look like a tornado went through them. Some days I take time to throw it all in buckets, and other days I spend lots of time organizing all into the right buckets but other days I’m too tired or have other things I’d like to do. Secret #1: a made bed makes the room look 50% cleaner.
The girls have a few “baby” blankets that are a foot by a foot and throw pillows so I usually switch off which ones I put on the bed by their pillows and one stuffed animal. Because the girls have more blankies 2 foot by 3 foot ones, I fold them all and put them at the end of the bed instead of on their pillows like in the boys room.
