Here it is! My FIRST “clean with me”!
They are certainly all the rage right now…and I must admit, it is strangely addicting to watch someone transform their house/room/closet in a matter of minutes!
Sometimes it motivates me to clean my own house but sometimes it simply motivates me to find another video to start watching. Haha
But anyway, I believe my video is special because I do my cleaning while my little ones are AWAKE! Most videos I’ve seen are filmed during naptime and I definitely understand the logic behind that.
We all know that any cleaning task done with a toddler takes AT LEAST twice as long. But there are several reasons I include my little ones in my weekly cleaning:
- I have so many things claiming my time during naptime that it is necessary to do things like cleaning while they are awake. After all, running a blog/vlog business takes a lot of time and is mostly necessary to do while they are asleep.
- “Working” with mommy teaches a great work ethic and if I can keep the music playing, take random dance breaks, and continue to show joy while I’m cleaning; they will hopefully develop a positive view of “housework”.
- Every child NEEDS to feel NEEDED!
So that is about it. Check out the video below to see how I do all of my weekly cleaning in one morning with my one- and two-year-old by my side!
