My daughter is 2 1/2, I have a 2 month old son and a dirty house. I try really hard to keep it up, but my toddler out paces me every day. Today is no different except that my patience with her is wearing thin. She keeps spreading toys around, and for some reason EVERYTHING she does is getting on my nerves. I feel terrible because a minute ago she was trying to push me back into the kitchen when I was coming to the living room to clean it up and I tried to guide her to the side, but my annoyance got the better of me and I put rather more force into the action than I intended and it knocked her over :(
Right now she's in my lap, cuddling her baby brother and this is very nice... but the second I try to start cleaning up the house she is going to run around and foil my plans again.
How do I find patience to deal with her, and how can I get and keep the house clean?!
