I know we've talked about this before, but I had a baby/child specific question for household chores, which I don't know if we've talked about before. Does cleaning up after the kids fall into its own category? Obviously, we try to get the girls (3 and 19 months) to help clean up after themselves, but sometimes (ok, who am I kidding, most times) we put them to bed and see that there is still some work to do to get the house back to tidy. How do people usually handle this part of tidying up? Even split, whoever is up the latest, whoever usually cleans (vs. cooks, laundry, etc.) does it? Is it situational? So if one parent was more involved with getting tons of toys out and not having them clean them up before bed, is that parent more responsible for the clean up?
Also, do most people try to keep things as tidy as possible during the week, and then take more time on the weekends to get the house back in order, or is it back to tidy every night?
