 We have 4 kiddos, 8, 6, 5, & 3. When they youngest 2 were babies it felt like I was cleaning all day and getting no where, even with DH and the oldest helping out. Now that they all are old enough to pitch in we have chores and allowances. It is so much easier. Theonly room that ever seems gets dirty is the master, lol.

So now I only have to pick up for maybe 15 minutes each morning once the older ones are at school, Laundry is every Firday, & dishes every night after dinner and thats it. 2 years ago I would tell you I was cleaning hours each day.

How long do you spend cleanign each day?

very little.  We have 2 kids (5 and 2) and DH has them pick up their toys while I'm making dinner and/or cleaning up the kitchen afterwards.  We pay a cleaning service for the rest.

It depends on what I have to do, and how my youngest is being that day, but it usually only takes an hour or so. I clean up as we go throughout the day, so that makes it easier. Laundry isn't included in that, but I do a load or two a day.
