Lego. It has taken over my house in a big way in the last couple of months. Our general rule for containing the mess is that no lego or duplo or train tracks are allowed on the main floor, they must remain upstairs in the boys’ rooms. I opt not to stress out about the mess if it’s out of sight. Which is all well and good until it’s time to vacuum the bedrooms. Which is essentially impossible considering all the tiny pieces of lego. So it’s a good thing I discovered the Libman dust mop!
Trying to tidy up all the vehicles, blocks and building supplies before I can clean the floors would easily add an hour to the chore. I’m a very busy mama and I don’t have an extra hour to spare for cleaning. Not to mention the fact that every single lego construction is precious and must not be disturbed or altered in any way for fear of my children never speaking to me again. Ugh.
Vacuuming their rooms is nearly impossible since there are tiny little pieces of lego hidden in every corner and crevice and woe to me should I accidentally suck one up.
Sweeping is pretty much pointless since it just stirs up the dust and settles it elsewhere. Plus there’s not enough floor space to actually sweep up a pile and use a dust pan.
