Cleaning the house can seem like a never-ending cycle, and it can be frustrating when your kids seem to undo everything you just did. But, let's be real, they're so stinkin' cute that we can't stay mad for long! Even though we love our kids to pieces, it can be overwhelming to constantly clean up after them, especially when you have multiple kids. But fear not, Mama - there are ways to stay on top of things without feeling like all you do is clean.

First off, let's acknowledge that this is just a phase. Your kids are young, and while it may seem like you're stuck in Groundhog's Day, it won't last forever. So try to take a deep breath, give yourself some grace, and know that even if your house isn't spotless all the time, that's okay.

But, if you're like me, you don't want to look back and think that all you did was clean instead of spending time with your kids. So, here are some tips that have helped me keep my sanity while also keeping my home somewhat clean:

Get the Cleaning Schedule
Having a regular cleaning routine can help your kids know what to expect, and it can also help you stay on top of things. 


Get Your Kids Involved
Even young children can help with chores around the house. Make it fun by playing music or having a cleaning dance party. Assign age-appropriate tasks, such as putting away toys or wiping down surfaces. This not only helps you keep the house clean but also teaches your kids responsibility and independence.

Cleaning Products for Kids
There are a variety of safe and effective cleaning products specifically designed for kids. These often come in fun shapes, colors, or scents that make cleanup more enjoyable for your little ones. 


Create Clean-Up Time
Set aside a specific time each day when the whole family can pitch in to get the house back in order. This gives you a chance to relax or get more important things done. Remember to keep it short and entertaining so everyone can enjoy their free time after cleaning up. 

Reward System
It can be helpful to set up a reward system for your children when they help with housework. This could include a special treat or activity of their choice, family movie night, or extra screen time. Be sure to thank them for their hard work!

Remember, Mama - you're doing an amazing job. Cleaning the house may seem like a daunting task, but with a little bit of planning and some help from your little ones, you can stay on top of things without sacrificing all of your time and energy.
