Housework

My mom & most of my family back home in Indonesia always think that Max must be a very good, calm, and gentle child who can sit still for a long period of time. I kept telling them, "No... he's just one regular active, curious, and energetic little boy." They won't believe me.
"How can you get anything done if he's an active child?"


Every morning, I will go through my tasks for the day. I list down my Today's Most Important Tasks; got the idea from simplemom.net. The website got tons of useful resources for mom. Go check it out! I then divide my task list into two groups. The first group is:Things that I can do with Max. Max will either play by himself, eat his snack, follow me around, or being carried on my back. The other group is things that I can't do when he's around.

Can be done with Max
  • Laundry
  • Line drying our clothes
  • Folding laundry
  • Cooking
  • Washing dishes
  • Shopping
  • Exercising (walking, swimming, or aerobic)
  • Vacuuming
  • Regular Cleaning

Can't be done with Max (
have to wait 'till he's asleep, or when Chris gets home from work):
  • Quiet time with God
  • Any computer related: E-mail, etc
  • Personal Finance
  • Read books
  • Mop the floor
