I spent the last few months asking (screaming?) HOW can I keep my house clean with a baby and a toddler?! HOW?! I have 2 under 2, and I know I’m not the only one who’s felt like trying to keep a house clean with a baby / toddler / multiple small people under foot is totally impossible.
Growing up, it was common to walk into the bathroom or kitchen and smell bleach. It was such a common household product that I was shown how to “safely” use it when I was in sixth grade to clean the bathroom. Thankfully, when we know better, we do better and that will not be the case when it comes to teaching my children how to clean, they will know how to properly use non-toxic household cleaners.
It’s not something I personally LIKE to think about because it feels like something I have so little control over. In fact, I’m almost of the opinion that we can’t avoid harmful chemicals in household products… because they are in almost everything we use on a daily basis. It could actually be panic inducing, if a person over thinks it.
Becoming a mommy (or daddy) comes with all kinds of new cleaning challenges. You’ll find yourself googling heaps of things you never worried about before (not least of all how to get poop out of the carpet). (Yes, poop.) (Carpet.)
~ I’m on a new adventure with the Squishy Baby, figuring out this mommy thing one day at a time. Raising little people while keeping our homes and finances under control might be a challenge, but it’s one I’m excited to tackle… and I want to encourage you to tackle it too.
