About Me

I am a crazy woman, funny and carefree but type A and anal all at the same time. I have two daughters and a Father who's a King...what more do I need?! My goal on this planet is to help His bride: literally (I plan weddings for a living!) and spiritually (I occasionally offer words of wisdom to loved ones...) Bless us all on this journey!

Kid Cleaning

Last week the girls had fall break and before we busted out the fun stuff we had to clean. "Mawwwwmmmmm..." they whined. Til they got cool jobs. Hannah got to take the couch cushions off (which she loves to do anyway) and vaccuum the couch and the cushions, any way she liked in any order she liked, as long as the cushions got put back the right way. Skylar got a spray bottle full of vinegar (my new favorite non toxic cleaning product, by the way) and got to do all windows and mirrors. Every mom on the planet knows how much fun a spray bottle is, and when you're 10 and get the big kid responsibility of having a real job with the spray bottle, well that's all the better. While they HAPPILY did these chores I cleaned out the entire refrigerator and washed and PUT AWAY (that's always the hard part) two loads of laundry. Then the girls made their beds and did their regular morning chores and the rest of the weekend was fun. Yay!

Does vinegar really work on windows? What can I use for LCD screens? I'm sorry I haven't blogged for awhile. Between working, school, and moving I have been crazy busy. I'm glad your kids had fun cleaning. I wish mine did. I have to think of some creative ways to get them involved.

checnet.org/healthehouse/education/top10-detail.asp is the ridiculously long web address i have on file for good vinegar stuff:) ("how to clean with 5 basic ingredients" or something like that!)

CHEC Healthehouse, that's it. Good stuff on how to not unintentionally poison our kids with all the crap in our house that supposedly protects us:) Happy Friday with that!!!!!!!

I just use a clean damp cloth on my windows and mirrors and then dry them with a towel. They are streak-free!! I should jsut toss that 3/4 used bottle of windex in my laundry room. LOL!
