OK so many people have asked me how do I keep my white house clean? And now that the house is listed and we’re having showings I am asked on a daily basis. The truth is I actually find it pretty easy and even more I’m really enjoying the cleanliness of it. I almost wish we could do this all the time but I know it’s not feasible. How I’m doing it now there is a lot of eating out, there was a lot of shouting”Don’t touch anything” or “you can play as long as you can play clean.”
The kids are actually fantastic at it. They have all been making their beds and they help with pillows and such. In the morning and all I need to do is straighten it out beds a tiny touch and make sure everyone’s laundry made it to a basket. I start at the boys room and sweep through the rooms until I get to the back door. There was one showing where I misjudged and thought I had time to change clothes and ended up racing out the back door just as they were coming in the front door. Phew that one was close!
I also love that house showings make me feel like I can justify fresh flowers throughout the house.
The only glitch has been the kids have been under the weather. I feel bad dragging them out of the house when they don’t feel well but a little guilty mom ice cream stop seems to cheer them right up.
How is everyone’s week going? Does anyone have any tips on their favourite neighbourhoods in Toronto? Kid friendly of course. We’re going to need some friends!!
