Re: Too many kids too little time?

I agree with the try and keep your kids near you as much as possible cause they will cause less mischief this way. Realistically though it can't be like that 24 /7 so I tell my kids you don't like cleaning the mess then don't make the mess. I know kids get bored with doing housework but they also have to realize that while we don't enjoy it either its a part of life. Its hard when they are all young but the more involved you get them when they are young (when vacuuming is something fun for them to do) the more likely they'll help out when they are older. Some days are better then others but that's when I tell myself it will get better tomorrow and try and start off the day with a good attitude. Cause when you're happy your kids are happy. Simple as that.
