Chloe and I have been doing 5 minute Round Robins to keep our house in order. Yes, you are asking the same question that Chloe asked a couple of days ago: What is a 5 minute Round Robin?
Basically you just go ’round to each room in your house and spend 5 minutes cleaning/tidying. If you have an older child that can help, you can really get a lot done in 5 minutes! We normally both work in the same room for 5 minutes but for some rooms (like bathrooms and hallway/laundry room) we will "divide and conquer".
This is a great tool to regain control of an out-of-control house or to maintain a home that is already tidy. It really is amazing what you can do in just 5 minutes when you are on a mission!
In other birdie news this morning, after we finished our Round Robin, I went to get Noah to feed her. Her bassinet sits in front of the Family Room window, and as I looked out I couldn’t believe the variety of birds I saw in our front yard. There was a red-headed woodpecker (eating my favorite oak tree, I might add), two red cardinals, a blue jay, and at least a dozen red robins, and almost a gazillon black birds (who were just a chattering)! I guess the warm weather we’ve had and the rain from this morning brought them out to get a tasty brunch of fresh worms (Yum! LOL). It sure looks like Spring is inching closer each day!
Have a blessed day, Dana
