My husband and I recently purchased our first home, a house that is 50 years old and needs a little updating. We are replacing all the flooring and repainting all the walls, just for starters.
Add to all that work the two small children...
What do you do with your kids while you are remodeling?
It's difficult to have the kids around when there are open buckets of paint, power tools on the loose, and Mom and Dad's minds are trying to focus on other things to get the job done.
When you don't have a babysitter available, what tips and tricks do you have to keep the kids out of trouble while the projects are in progress?
For those times when things can't be cleaned up in a day, how do you keep the projects protected?
Any other answers to questions I haven't thought to ask about remodeling while being a parent?
