I hate cleaning.
It's never on my radar.
It's totally not natural to me.
And I'm not good at it.
Not at all.
My husband is the opposite.
He is neat and orderly.
And good/efficient at cleaning.
Messiness makes him crazy.
Although I think our cleaning differences have a lot to do with our personalities
I think it also has to do with the fact that
I grew up doing NO chores and
he grew up helping out around the house.
We've decided for lot of different reasons
we want to teach our kids to do chores and to help around the house.
But since this is definitely not my strength
I'm looking to all of you neat freaks
(I say that in the nicest way. I wish I was a neat freak myself)
for some help.
How does your family do chores in your home?
Do you have some sort of chore chart?
Do you have your kids do the same chores every day or do you rotate chores?
Do you have a cleaning schedule for yourself?
I think I might be more into doing chores if I had a mommy chore chart.
There's something so satisfying in being able to check things off.
I'd love to hear your ideas!
Here are some ideas I found around the blogging world.
