Here’s a friendly reminder from maid service, Brentwood: cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow! In other words, there are things you’ll once look back on much more fondly than having spent the whole weekend doing your weekly cleaning. Watch your kids grow and cherish those moments. Instead of getting cranky and agitated at the sight of cookie crumbs on your impeccably clean kitchen floors, try letting your hair down and enjoying yourself with your munchkins, or enjoying your pregnancy, for a change. Besides, you can always have professional cleaning done every now and then, so you can really have it all!
Set your priorities straight
“Cooking and cleaning can wait ’till tomorrow, For babies grow up, I’ve learned to my sorrow. So settle down, cobwebs, and, dust, go to sleep. I’m rocking my baby ’cause babies don’t keep.”
Whoever wrote the poem knew exactly what they were talking about. As you try to keep your home clean and wholesome for your family’s sake, make sure you’re not, in fact, missing out on what really matters. Take some time away from household chores and just go out and play with your kids. Memories of these unforgettable moments last a lifetime. A squeaky-clean home, sadly, does not.
Find your inner child
We tend to forget that kids pretty much have it all figured out. They laugh from the heart, they speak their mind, they make mistakes. Let them be kids – they have a lifetime of adulting ahead of them anyway.
Sure, you want to teach them responsibility, but don’t let it turn into torture. Get them to help out around the house from time to time, but also show them how much you appreciate their help. After all, they understand much more than we think.
What’s more, kids learn from us all the time, even when they see us staring listlessly at the TV screen or frowning at the energy bill. Kids see us as their role models and mimic what we do. If you can learn to focus on the joys of life more than you do on everyday problems, you’d be doing your parenting right.
Set meaningful goals
Make a conscious effort to set an example for your kids so they’d grow into decent human beings. But don’t forget about quality time and how rewarding it can be for everyone. You should enjoy your kids’ childhood at least half as much as they are. In the words of the Rolling Stones: “Time waits for no one.”
