So, we are moving in a few weeks. We get our keys next week and then we’ll be between 2 places for 2 weeks. Today was the Open House for our duplex. I know everyone who’s ever had to show a house already knows this: keeping things just right with kids in the house is HARD.
We had plans to leave our house today at 11:30. At 10:30, after picking up the same two bins of toys and reshelving all of their books for the 157th time today, I called it quits. The husband has been power washing the driveway of any drawings made by the kids with his pressure washer. We loaded everyone up into the car (including our pets!) and ran some errands. Good Will drop-off, Target, picked up a Mother’s Day present for my Mom, drove through the new neighborhood etc. It was a fairly packed two and a half hours.
When we got home, everything was neat and clean and ready to go. I made dessert for tomorrow and did the dishes. I made dinner for tonight and did the dishes again. We picked up the toys every 30 minutes or so and then finally put everyone to bed. It’s nice to have everything neat and tidy, but I’m not sure I can keep this up!
I mean I’d LOVE to, I just don’t know if it’s possible.
It’ll have to happen for at least another 48 hours, someone wants to take one more look….of course.
Wish me luck!
How do you keep things clean for things like this with kiddos in the house?
