  • uhm...about once a week, we're not that messy and my kids are in school all day and I make em clean their own messes up. I'll do some vacuuming once a week though.

  • My 2 year old doesnt bring out much .... maybe 2 or 3 toys during the day... When my 6 year old gets home I'm always picking up or telling her to pick up things!

  • Normally once a day but I have school aged children. Winter Break and most it meaning rain was a nightmare though. I've been sick the past 3 days so I'm still playing catch up.

  • I only clean up after the kids have went to bed. I am not going to be the human vacuum cleaner and following them around picking up after them all day. I try to instill in them to pick up after themselves and to keep only what they're playing with out, but they're toddlers and sometimes don't follow those rules. Therefore, if they neglect those rules and I do end up cleaning up after them then it's not until they've went to bed. That way it's clean for the whole night and I don't have to be the human vacuum.

  • I do it twice, and that's it!

  • Maybe once. It's mostly just the baby knocking all the DVDs off the shelves (his new favorite past time). Otherwise the older kids aren't allowed to bring their toys in here and they clean up any messes they make and usually pick up the baby's toys (not that I ask, they just do it most of the time). They are 10, 9, 8 and 4. the only room I clean daily is the kitchen.

  • about 4 times, picking up toys but mainly sweeping. we dont have carpet, a dinning area, or chairs for our table yet, so ds has a little table with a chair that he sits at to "eat" aka make a mess lol
