I don’t know about other moms but I find it very hard to be productive with an 18th month old in tow. I literally get nothing done (laundry, cleaning, errands) for days and then I get into a “work it” mode and get everything done at once and nothing can deter me from this mission.
I wish I could follow the rule of clean one room a day to keep a clean house. I try all the time but it never happens. I end up being a psycho cleaner and organizer and drive my husband crazy for a day and then the next day, mess ensues. I couldn’t keep a clean bedroom when I was a kid I certainly can’t keep a whole house clean!
But today is a productive day and I did the errands I never do. I got gas, went to the bank to activate my new ATM card, made a dentist appointment, did the dishes, and went grocery shopping with Super Cooper. I even started my table buckets for back to school. Who knows I might even get crazy and unpack from this Cape this weekend.
But I feel my productivity mood wearing off quick. I am sure I will just end up blowing bubbles, playing with chalk, and watching Elmo for the next 6 hours or so until Coop goes to bed and I hit the gym.
Question: Mom’s how do you get all your errands done with a baby? Do you work on a schedule or do you get everything done all at once? Or do you live in complete chaos like me?!
