Getting Ready for a House Showing with a Two-Year-Old

Mop the floors--spills juice

Clean the television--kisses the television

Clean the windows--help wipe the windows with bare hands

Put clothes away--opens drawers and pulls out clothes

Straighten up closet--has an impromptu desire to wear slippers

Put toys away--wants to play with all the toys

Neatly organize bookshelf--wants to read books

Take out the trash--pushes the empty trash can around like a car

Wipe down the counters

Pick up after Ambria


Pick up after Ambria

Lights on

Pick up after Ambria

Put on shoes


Do it again...

Bless her heart, she is two, but man, is she stressful during cleaning.

Thankfully we have a sale pending on the house but people still want to see the house. Hopefully all the paperwork will go through smoothly and then we won't have to deal with any more showings and open houses and two year olds making messes during cleaning time.

I didn't know you were selling your house. Bummer. But good luck, I hope you get a great offer!

It's a full time job being a mom that's for sure!

Glad to hear you have an offer on your house. I pray the right family purchases it and continues to make it a home filled with love!

I can't even imagine how difficult it would be to see a house with a toddler in the home, oYe Vey!
