Part of organizing my home includes a chore chart that breaks the chores down by days. Each day I also throw in a load of laundry-which reminds me there is a load still wet in the washer. : (
Today's chore was vacuuming and we accomplished mostly all of it except for my room and the girls room. The kids got a kick out of sucking up the cobwebs and spiders with the vacuum cleaner. Then it turned into, "Suck my hand up", "Suck my arm up", "Do that again!" Yes, I did put the vacuum cleaner on their arms and hands so they could feel the suction. Before I knew it it was almost lunch time.
My Laundry Schedule Looks like this:
Monday- Moms Laundry
Tuesday- Noahkeem & Rocco's Laundry
Weds - Cookie & Dolly's Laundry
Friday- Daddy's Laundry
My chore schedule is written on a chart and posted on the side of the fridge and also in my Home Management Notebook. (see http://www.myblessedhome.blogspot.com/ on how to create a HMN)
The chart I used for chores was taken from Gayle Grahams book, How to Homeschool. You can find this at http://www.christianbook.com/
Each Day I have 1 or 2 chores to do and use my helpers with them.
- Monday - Vacuum & Iron-which I almost never iron
- Tuesday- Dust
- Wednesday- Mop Floors
- Thursday-Change Linens, Clean Baths
- Friday-Clean Car, Yard/Garden,Dust if needed, Vacuum again if needed
Saturday & Sunday is Chill out day. Only do maintenance,(spills, dishes, sweeping). Family time.
The above schedule is subject to change If I the Queen Mother have other obligations.
Hope that helps. Off to bed. But before I go, here's something all of us moms can appreciate: Mom's Overture
