On cleaning -
I have discovered that white vinegar can clean almost anything.
Sometimes a rag and warm water and some patience is all that is needed.
it's the clutter that kills, not the dirt
sick babies have endless snot. They should make baby nose tampons, seriously.
two year olds should come with a mess alarm. I am always finding a new mess I didn't realize she had made.
sometimes you just have to jump in when you don't know where to start.
loud music or a phone call can make the cleaning go by faster.
