Bounce Back After Baby Challenge Day 5: Take a Break from Chores!

Today challenge is to take a break from chores! Don't worry, the dust bunnies will still be there tomorrow!

Ok, maybe you can't go on an all-out chores strike, but you can put off a few things for tomorrow and enjoy a little break!

Some ideas:

  • Leave the beds unmade.
  • Have a no-dishes night and eat off paper plates.
  • Can SO or an older child make dinner?  Let them!

What chores will YOU be ignoring today? Does your SO help around the house?

Each mom who participates in all 10 days of the challenge will be entered to win a Welcome to the Club gift basket!

We have a party to attend today, so no time for chores today! I think its important to take a day off every once in awhile!

Dh helps with some chores some like the laundry I forbid him to touch.
Today I'm visiting family so I'm ignoring ALL my household chores.

I already did the dishes but I wouldn't mind ignoring the laundry!  Thankfully my husband does help.

I'm ignoring the bedrooms today. However, I do need to finish the living room. Laundry exploded everywhere.

Unfortunately, I have to do laundry because there is milk all over the place. But I will definitely skip the dishes today.

Didn't do dishes last night so need to finish those tonight but other than that its a night off. Tomorrow is a major cleaning day

I don't know that I can ignore any chores. They need doing, and I live by myself, so I'm the only one to do them.

Today's is easy, we already do this! Fridays is our No chore day! We eat simple things like sandwiches, or if we have money we go out to eat. We don't have football practice it cheer practice. It's a breath day for us all!

I plan to order takeout today! My stress level has reached the max and I don't care!
