...is a little help around the house. Am I right?! While I realize a vacuum is not a super romantic gift, it's funny how as you get a little older, you really just want gifts that will make your life easier.
And what does that look like in our home these days? Getting ACTUAL HELP with the chores! And that includes having our kids help. There's something to be said about having your kids participate in the household chores, learning that it takes work to maintain a clean, healthy home and being part of the family TEAM. I want my kids to know that they're an important part of our family, and that means they share in the chores. At every age and stage, that has looked a little different in our home. When they're toddlers, you teach them to dress themselves and put their toys away. When they're a little older, they learn to brush their teeth and make their bed. I didn't include them in the house cleaning before because I didn't really want them touching the cleaning supplies. I didn't want them inhaling the fumes. Heck, I didn't even want to!
Then this little charmer walked into my life a little over a year ago. This bottle of magic is all-natural, smells like cinnamon amazingness and has the power of Thieves Essential Oil, which translates to IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPPORT while I breath it in and clean!
Now, I happily hand over the spray bottle of Thieves Cleaner (it only takes a capful in 16oz of distilled water!) and have the kids clean every surface in our house. That INCLUDES our counters, cabinets, sinks, toilets, showers and even our mirrors and windows. That's right, this stuff doesn't streak!!
I don't own another cleaner. For real. And the chores are nicely shared in our house these days!! You need to get (or gift) some of this magic!!
