It's a Hard Knock Life...

This morning I ripped up a couple of old towels, dressed my kids in their swim suits, put on some kids music and had them scrub the floors with me.

We used doTerra's On Guard Cleaner Concentrate to make the mop water, so it was non-toxic. I loved not having to worry about their skin, their eyes, or their clothes!

I know, kind of reminds you of Little Orphan Annie a little, doesn't it? They were having fun though! In fact, I couldn't even get Hannah to smile at the camera, she was having too much fun scrubbing!

My floors look great! This may become a weekly routine.

What chores do your kids help you with?

***New recipe coming tomorrow!!!


  1. Jordyn helps fold and put away her clothes, puts the garbage liner on the garbage and wipes the mirrors. But trying to get her to do anything more is a chore for me!

  2. Haha, I understand that! I really need to teach my kids to fold their own clothes, laundry is my nemesis!!!

  3. Child labor. I like it. I might have to copy your idea LOL. My daughter helps take out the dishes from the dishwasher at 2 yrs old. I might have to graduate her to cleaning the floors :)

  4. Haha, do it Skye! Julianna would love it, I bet!

  5. I have my moments of inspiration, but most of the time I'm quite dull! :-)
