5 Phrases That Will Make Your Kids Stop Crying and Begging

Lil Tip: Clean Up

As a mom, you find yourself in charge of the holiday aftermath and mess, while the rest of the family lounges around the house. Don't do it alone! Make it fun and get the family involved.

After you take your Christmas tree out of the house, your floor will undoubtedly be covered in pine needles. Take a large roll of duct tape and wrap loops around your lil ones' hands and knees. Then tell them to crawl around and gather pine needles. They can really get into it — pretending to be cats, dogs, or anything else that roams on all fours.

Your clean up will be quicker and who knows, maybe everyone including your husband will get into housekeeping.
