  • Frustrated and beaten! I cant win..but my kids are 7 and 5 so I expect them to clean up whatever mess they have made now that they are old enough to do it! I just say ok time for clean up and they do it until I say its satisfactory.

  • Mine are all old enough to clean up- So I simply do not put up with it, at that point it is their job to fix it!

  • Frustrated! Sometimes angry. I try to just ignore it though.

    Sometimes- when I'm having a smart day, I'll clean after my toddler goes to bed. That way it at least stays clean for a few hours!

  • Not happy. I think my 4 year old does it on purpose sometimes.

  • My dd, 15 mo DRIVES ME CRAZY w/ that! I'll finish mopping the floor to turn around & find her pouring something all over. I'll pick up her toys & put them away to turn around & see that not only has she pulled them all back out but has somehow managed to add to the pile that she's dragging from one end of the living room to the other. I'll fold laundry just to turn around & see her throw it in the air....there are some days I give in & just don't clean! Hey if you can't beat em join em lol!
