I am not expert on this believe me, but you just have to find a way to make motherhood and chores work together or nothing is going to get done at home. My husband cannot figure out how I can be home with the kids and plow through a to-do list. I can’t figure out why he can’t figure this out (hehehehe). I think it best to occupy the kids with something or just get them involved in the task..it also helps that they have each other to play with! When I work on things like painting, everyone just mills around me including the dog (much to my dismay), but this is the reality of the situation. Emma can help me sometimes which is fun for me…she wants to be like Mommy! This was my solution the other eve while painting in the basement and working on my coffee table:
|We laid down a carpet scrap for a play mat and dumped out all the stuffed animals!
The stuffed turtle was Emma’s first stuffed animal when she was a baby!
It smelled like baby powder years ago!
|Or surrender control of the project and just let them help|
|The kids only help with the primer, not the final coat…Emma enjoys this|
Have a great day and make it work however you can!
