Christmas Cleaning

With Christmas only 5 days away, I am spending this week cleaning and organizing as much as I can. It is quite interesting with the children trying to help, but we are wading through. ;) Levi's new interest is helping "clean" the potty. He floats wonderful things in there: toothbrushes, Christmas cards, Barbies, and others. They never knew that they would have such a fateful end with a burial at sea.
My daughter is old enough now to realize that cleaning is not something that she should want to do. :) We clean around her mostly. She does have some chores she is supposed to do, like putting her toys away, helping to watch her brother, and making her bed. I usually wait until the end of the week or in this case, Wednesday to make her really pitch in.
I have to pick my cleaning around her is just easier momentarily, until I can focus my full attention on making sure that she is doing what she is supposed to.
We are almost done. I have lots of laundry to put away. It's all folded, but I just can't get motivated to delve into it.Dishes and laundry seem to be my cryptonite. I'd rather clean that potty a handful of times than have to wash the dishes just I come by it naturally though, my Mom and sister loathe dishes almost as much as I do! ;)
Off to clean....hugs!
