Washing the Floor
My floor was in desperate need of a washing the other day. Since the girls were home from school (it was a snow day) I decided to enlist their help. I had them change into their old swimsuits. Then I gave them a pail of water and some rags and let them go to town. They think that this is a lot of fun. They get to wear their swimsuits in the winter, play with water, and help mom. When they are done washing I give them an old towel to dry the floor. Voila, a clean floor and fun activity for kids.
I am a stay at home mother of three girls aged 13 (Star), 11 (Sky), & 3 (LT or Lil), and a boy (LK) who is 5
years old. I live on a farm in rural Saskatchewan and I am striving to live a frugal and healthy life. I love crocheting, reading, and playing with my kids. I don't love cooking or cleaning but as they are part of my job description as homemaker I am trying to change that.
