So, I haven’t listened to the podcast yet, but I saw the title. I thought to myself, “Ugh. I guess I could clean for 5 minutes.” I set a timer and cleaned my bedroom. It’s not perfect, but 5 minutes made a big dent. I kept working and it looks pretty good (we’ll ignore the dresser of doom for now). 😀
I have a different TPAD is called Toddler Passing Adventure Syndrome. I have SO appreciated these last two podcasts as inspiration to do what I can when I can, and to do something without becoming overly discouraged.
Yes…I’m glad you have taken Nony’s advice to heart. Toddlers take a lot of time. And as a mom with teens, I can tell you it feels like it lasts forever, but it doesn’t. That age will pass. Enjoy it now and fit in the 5 minutes of something when you have energy and can.
Thanks for “keeping me company” while I got my kitchen cleaned up and all the raw chicken that I bought (on sale!) processed. Sure makes it easier to stay on task when you know that you’re not alone. Took me two podcasts. 🙂

The before and after pictures really do help. I could marathon-clean all day and since I get used to the new state quickly, I just see that it’s still a mess and not an improved mess.
A really good reminder for me! Goodness, you can even get started on emptying the dishwasher in 5 minutes….if you don’t get finished, you are just that much more ahead when you get back to it!
Now, to put it all into practice….
