I have been feeling completely overwhelmed so haven't been doing much. So today I kicked my own a$$ and got some things done. I started with the dishes and then the clean laundry in the basket. And ran some errands, wanting to get them done before it started raining was a good motivator. I have a toddler to. I have her and her older sister clean up the toys at just before bed, so at least I can relax a bit before the day starts again. And I think I am going to cook dinner, for me a major thing. So I suggest in the morning have a goal of getting one chore done. After or during nap time get another done. At night start teaching your toddler to pick up. With my 2 year old we started at 12-18 months I would point to something and walk her to were in belongs and tell her to put in. Now at 2 I can tell her to pick something up and tell her to put it away. As you get things done you might get on a roll and do more.
