    OK. I've used a play pen since my kids could crawl to get stuff done. It's been highly effective.

    Tho why don't you try it? Only for 10min in every hour so you get stuff done and you know she now safe?

    18mos are the devil. They SENSE when you want to be productive.

    I don't bother trying to tidy during the day when DD is home. DH does it after bed time or first thing in the morning.

    So far its taken me 31 years. 32 in June
    Cleaning is a never ending task. Is certainly gotten easier as the kids have gotten older (they tidy their own rooms and pick their stuff up when I ask).

    Just out of curiosity, I just timed myself cleaning the bathroom... 27 minutes! Probably half of that was cleaning the shower though. So not as bad as the hour I thought it was (felt like an hour though!) but not as efficient as some of the PP's!
