Hello!

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!

  • Funny . My eldest daughter is a hoarder ( who even keeps receipts ) has the messiest bedroom and my son is very tidy and hates mess in his room . She takes after the father , he takes after my side of family .

  • I hate cleaning at the best of times, but my favourite is the missing socks found behind wardrobes, I spend months looking for them, no one knows where they go, but they must throw them against the ceiling and they fall down the back of the wardrobe, annoys hell out of me, but at least I get to pair some more up.

  • I see in your story you actually answered your own question on how to get the kids to help with cleaning. $$$$$$…. You said you found money so you tell them as they clean any money they find they can keep. Oh also the taking away of games you have to follow through with what you say and for a long period of time.
