Summer is here and any day now our children will be out of school and testing the limits of our patience. While the children are
creating memories as most like to call it, I like to call it a pain in my butt when it comes to cleaning. Kids are not the cleanest people because it is the last thing on their mind. It is hard to get them away from their daily activities, playing, coloring etc. just to wash their hands because they might be sticky from lunch or dirty from playing outside. That’s why I’m planning on having a little fun this summer and creating memories that both the children and I will enjoy. And what I am about to tell you is going to sound really crazy but you have to stick with me through the end.
I’m going to let my kids draw on the wall. Yes, even as I was writing this I am second guessing myself. I mean who in their right mind ever says anything remotely close to that and goes through with it? It is certainly not a habit I condone but the inevitability of it happening is something every parent will probably go through. Kids like to create. And although it is certainly not the medium of choice in which I would love to receive my kid’s artwork, we are going to use this as a learning experience for them on what not to do. Reverse Psychology anyone? But, with a little bit of Mr. Cleans help, I can make it happen. But first, before I let the kids “ruin” the walls of their bedroom I’m putting Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to the test with marks they have already made. Just to make sure. Insert a winking faced emoji here, ha.
On top of cleaning up after the kids, I have to also worry about the worst chore of them all. Laundry. Oh, how I loathe laundry. It probably wouldn’t be so bad buy my kids like to change their clothes probably close to five times a day. For no reason at all. Why do they do this? Who will ever know. That’s why I’m using Downy Unstopables to keep our clothes clean and smelling fresh so when they decided to change their shirt for the fourth or fifth time in one day, I will always know that their shirt will smell amazing, even if they’re messy, sweaty bodies don’t.
Last, but certainly not least, is keeping up with the tiny messes that my children like to leave behind moving from one area of the house to the other. Let me give you a couple of examples of what I am talking about. After eating breakfast or lunch my kids like to congregate in the boy’s room to play with their toys. During these feeding times, for lack of a better way to put it, my kids don’t necessarily have the best table etiquette. Food usually falls of the plate or maybe there is a spill from one of their cups. Another example would be when we come in from being outside and their shoes might be a bit dirty, even though we ask them to take their shoes off at the door, dirt is still being brought into our home. I have found that tackling the little, sometimes big, messes that are being left behind that Bounty Advanced makes the process that much easier to tackle.
The good thing about all of these P&G Household products is that I can buy them at Costco in larger quantities. Something that I love to do with all my cleaning supplies because you can never have enough and I can never get away with purchasing so much anywhere else. But don’t forget the many other P&G Household to help make those memories easier to clean up.
