Finially, Some Help Around Here

It wasn't long ago that my sweeping adventures looked more like an all-out brawl...Gwendolyn fighting and yelling at me to give up my broom, all the while holding on to the broom as I tried to move it front to back...very annoying.

Now, I can sweep the whole kitchen floor in one try, as she labors along with me. Now, I know they sell little toy brooms...I just found them to be incredibly flimsy, with the bristles unable to stand on their own. Besides, she really likes the "real" things a lot better.

This is a lobby broom by Rubbermaid. I got it at the Home Depot for $5.99. Someone, on line, even suggested trimming off the bristles to make it shorter...which would be an excellent idea...but I'm pretty lazy and it works just fine for us this way!

To be fair...she does still try and take my broom every once in a while so that she can have BOTH of them...but that's just Gwendolyn.

What is it with little kids? They always want what you have. Matthew loves to sweep as well and will take my broom so he can have two as well. haha. weirdos.

My thought is that they will be in VERY good practice for when sweeping (and dishes, and vacuuming) are their full time chores!! Like when they are 3!

So cute! I tried to message you on FB, but my account is not working right now. It won't let me message or write on walls. Anyway, my question for you is...what do you do about the horrible smell of the diapers? I do laundry about every 3 days or so and the urine gets so bad that sometimes it smells up my whole house! What do you keep yours in that contain the stench? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Jen.
