Do you know how much I can accomplish with my kids out of the house?

They've been gone for forty five minutes and I've cleaned three rooms, burned a cd, and did some pilates...

  • zoejains momma >>> That is so accurate. The thing about the timer, is the drama, and the one I'll add, like watching a re-run of the dukes of hazzard. YEEEE- HAAAWWWW ! ! ! ! !

  • I know!!! When my babies and husband are out of the house I am like a tornado ripping through here.
    When I have to leave with the 3 of them, it's like hearding blind cattle. And leaves more of a mess behind them than there was in the beginning!!

  • I know what you mean. When my kids go to their dad's place, I get the whole house cleaned and vacuumed in a few hours and then I relaaaaax because they'll be back the next day to mess it all up again. Lol!!!

    I get less than 24 hours of kid free time a week. I used it as efficiently as possible.

  • I love that feeling of wow. the entire house is clean and everything is put away in the correct spot.. now for the fun part.. get the stop watch and as soon as the kids walk back in the door start the timer.. see if it takes them just as long to mess the house back up as it did for you to clean it lol

  • I know isn't amazing how much can get done in a short amount of time then when they come home it's all undone in like a few minutes.

  • My hubby once went off for a weekend with his mom and the offspring. My house was sparkling by the time they got home, even had a couple of batches of cookies on the kitchen island and fresh flowers throughout.
