Lately our cleaning lady has gotten slower and slower around the house. It is taking her longer and longer to clean the house but I am not complaining too much. She is doing something that I am unwilling to do, that is clean with 3-4 little kids underfoot. These last couple of months all Quinn wants to do is help Lisa. Suddenly Jenna has joined the bandwagon so now Lisa has to clean like this….
Trust me it is slow vacuuming in our house. And when they decided they were done ‘helping’ Lisa, they decided their bears had to help too. By the end Lisa had a string of animals that she had to hold onto while trying to vacuum our house.
Ryan, who doesn’t necessarily like to help vacuum, does like playing “catch me if you can” with the vacuum. So not only does Lisa have to clean my house with two little girls “helping” her the whole time, she also has to chase them with vacuums.
Surpisingly, Lisa actually does get the work done but it has been taking her an extra hour or so each week. Now if I was a good employer maybe I would keep my kids out of Lisa’s way but I find it much easier to just sit on the couch and watch while my house gets cleaned, my kids get played with and me doing nothing.
