Cleaning: 101

I have a confession. I am a terrible housekeeper! I don't like to clean. When I was young, I told my mom that I would have a maid. She asked what I would do if I couldn't afford one, and I said, "I'll just get a penny maid." :) Well, things have gotten more simplified for those of us that convulse at the word "housework"-especially when it comes to the WORST room to clean-the dreaded bathroom!

Scrubbing Bubbles has the Action Scrubber, which I love. Everything you need to clean your entire bathroom comes contained in a disposable sponge that attaches to a reusable handle. No more bottles of cleaning agents and bleach in this house. I've found the answer to my bathroom conundrum!

I don't know about you, but I have a really hard time cleaning the shower. Why does it seem like such a chore? Of all the housework, this is definitely my biggest obstacle (yes, even over the toilet!). Now that tub crayons have been introduced into my life, I've wanted to run and hide at the thought of cleaning the shower...until now! Today, I got the Automatic Shower Cleaner. Although I have not fully put it to the test, I have a feeling this product is going to be my dearest friend. A shower that's clean, that you don't actually have to clean??? Who could ask for anything better? I'm going to give it the 2 week challenge, and I'll let you know how it works out.

Have bathroom woes of your own? Never fear, because you can WIN an Action Scrubber of your very own. We've got two to give to the readers with the best child-related bathroom horror story. Leave your bathroom tale in the comments.* Winners will be chosen on Sunday, February 3rd, at 9 PM CST. Good luck!

*Anything inappropriate or just too disgusting will be deleted & disqualified. In the spirit of the contest, keep it "clean"!

Pretty Exciting, for a Wednesday

We found out today that we're heading to the newest Great Wolf Lodge for Noel's 2nd birthday! He is going to love it, and I can't wait to post the review. Our room looks awesome, and has a cave-themed sleeping area! I'm not sure that he'll sleep in it, but he'll sure have fun exploring in the room and visiting the water park, complete with a zero-depth children's activity pool. We decided to keep the birthday party low key this year, meaning it's just going to be Noel & us. Let's face it: any energy I ever had has ground to a screeching halt. I'm glad it's only his 2nd birthday, and he won't be horribly disappointed. What am I saying? We're taking him to a water park and he gets to stay in a "cabin"! He's going to have the time of his life!
