Overwhelmed by Unorganised Chaos
Delegating Sharing the Chores
I have said it a thousand times before… I’m going to appoint jobs to the kids, create a cleaning rota, I never follow through, EVER! Before I worked full time, I ran a tight ship my house was always clean tidy and presentable. For me that was an advantage of being a stay at home Mum, I couldn’t or wouldn’t want to go back to being a stay at home Mum; I found it very isolating, one of the main reason I like to come to work is to get adult interaction & convocations.
- Switched off the internet
- Taken away phones computers
- Grounded – You will stay in your room until it’s done
- Reward charts do not have the same effect above the age of 5!
- Days Out
- Sleepovers with friends
Tell me working Mums & Dads “How do you do it, is it even possible”? Do all working parents bedrooms look like mine? I’m feeling like an unruly messy teen, and possibly giving my somewhat scruffy teen daughters a run for there money! Competing for the dirtiest room ha! Facebook and Instagram always look so pretty nobody shows there untidiness; let’s break the social media pretty picture etiquette.
Inspiration & Motivation
I think I might be completely insane, who wants to start organising there home right before the children finish school for Summer! Nanny Mcphee Katie – Lou needs you! Or maybe it will work in my favour, and my little darling will help? If anyone has any tips or tricks that can help me by making things easier or suggestions to get the rest of my family helping out, please do get in touch and share your wisdom.
Much Love Katie- Louise xx
