Bringing a new baby home from the hospital can be overwhelming. When we finally got to bring Brooke home, I remember driving away thinking, “this is it, no more nurses”, it just the three of us. Not to mention, the first two weeks are a slight blur from lack of sleep, especially NICU life. You get lots of advice going into parenting and really, you don’t know which you will use until you are there. I firmly believe that every pregnancy is different, every child is different and thus parenting them should be different. However, there is one big piece of advice that holds true. Tidy Teamwork with Lemi Shine is key.
Kevin will say that for a little while, he wasn’t quite sure how to help. The baby needed me the majority of the time. However, he quickly learned that the biggest thing he could do to help was “tidy teamwork”. He picked up around the house, cleaned pumping stuff, did the laundry, washed dishes – you name it, he cleaned it.
I cannot tell you enough how helpful it was a new mom to have your teammate helping with the cleaning routine. Not only did he pickup extra responsibilities like dish cleaning, but he also continued helping with house cleaning. We have always been a fan of the team approach to cleaning so that we can get it done faster. I dust, clean the kitchen, clean the toilets and sweep/mom the floors. He cleans the bathroom counters, sinks, showers and vacuums.
Now, as Brooke has gotten older, this hasn’t changed. Cleaning up after kids is a full time job. There is constantly food on the floor, toys everywhere and things that need to be cleaned. With a lineup of powerful & safe products, Lemi Shine helps us keep our house clean. Not only do they have fantastic packaging (i’m a sucker for great packaging), but the products are just as amazing. They help our house smell fresh and clean and also, I love their dish soap!
