So I’ve left my spring clean a little late this year, the last day of spring and we’re all busily cleaning and slowly packing in preparation for our move. Not to mention we have a house inspection on Wednesday. The eldest is making an effort to clean her room, while my youngest is running around the house refusing to do any work!
It seems the only way to motivate them is yelling, eventually that tactic works. Threatening to take away toys and xbox time, calling Santa, being sent to Nanna’s (that’s a replenishment to my kids lol), none of it works!
It’s amazing the amount of pens and pencils you find in the strangest of places. 10c and five sent coins seem to get trapped in the couch and multiply. Bits of paper and tiny toys the kids leave lying everywhere. Most of the time the lounge room looks like an obstacle course! Spring cleaning, my most unfavourite time of the year!
