Shower and clean
Cleaning the shower is one of my least favorite chores there are. I’ve tried every shower cleaning product out hoping that there’s something on the market that will allow me to never clean my shower again.
I haven’t found anything that gets my shower as clean as I like it so I’m still doing that chore. A great way to be a multitasking mom is to scrub the shower while showering. Before you start actually showering, using a scouring pad, scrub the shower surface. Then you’ll rinse the shower during your shower. Allowing you and your shower to be nice and clean.
Help with homework during dinner prep
Another great way to be a multitasking mom is to have homework time during dinner prep time. My kids usually do their homework at the kitchen island. This is a perfect place for them to do their home and for me to get dinner ready.
Since I’m close by they can ask for help right there. I’m making sure they’re getting their homework done, we’re spending time together, and I’m cooking dinner. This is a win, win, win!
