Which Chores Should You Ignore as a Super Sized Family

Which Chores Should and Should Not You Ignore as a Supersized Family

I read a book on organizing your Supersized Family that made a point to say that when you are at the beginning of your supersized family journey (aka you have five kids under five years old)…there are chores you should ignore.

Why?

Because if you spend time dusting the fans, it pulls you away from your sweet little ones when they need you most.

Obviously, if your kids all have allergies, by all means, dust your fans!

But you have to hear what I’m saying is that don’t waste time doing random chores that don’t really affect the productiveness of your motherhood.

Every family is different and every home is different. Different sizes. Different needs. Etc.

But these are some of the chores that could potentially be ignored when you have tons of little ones running around, just had a baby or are generally overwhelmed (are there supersized moms that aren’t generally overwhelmed…just saying?)

Which Chores Should You Ignore as a Supersized Family

  1. Wiping baseboards
  2. Dusting in general (including fans)
  3. Cleaning the microwave
  4. Sweeping under the couch
  5. Cleaning the fridge (other than major spills)
  6. Repainting (unless it’s a fun DIY)
  7. Organizing papers or your computer folders (save it for another day when the kids are bigger or your ultra bored)
  8. Making your bed or kids bed
  9. Feeling obligated to look like Pinterest mom chores
  10. Oven

Which Chores Should You NEVER Ignore as a Supersized Family

  1. Wiping doorknobs (so kids say well and you don’t have to clean up barf)
  2. Scrubbing toilet bowls (nothing makes me feel grossed-out as much as a dirty toilet)
  3. Dishes
  4. General picking up (for safety reasons)
  5. Praying for your children
  6. Bodily fluids on carpet/furniture/bedding (for sanitary reasons)
  7. Fixing things that might be unsafe
  8. Unclogging the drain (especially if you have lots of girls)
  9. Chores that make you sanity stay in place
  10. Sweeping/Vaccuming (nothing screams disorder like a dirty floor)
