More Than Just a Vacuum: Why I Love My Roomba and You Will Too!
Working from home with kids can feel like an endless cycle of messes. Just when you finish cleaning up one spill, the next one happens. It’s enough to make you want to pull your hair out. That’s why I believe every work-from-home parent needs a Roomba. Yes, you heard that right. A Roomba.
If you’ve never heard of a Roomba, it’s a robotic vacuum that roams around your house picking up dirt, dust, and debris. But it’s not just any vacuum. It’s a magical device that can save you time, sanity, and possibly even your marriage.
With a Roomba, you can finally say goodbye to the endless cycle of sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming. Instead, you can sit back, relax, and watch as the Roomba does all the work for you. It’s like having a mini maid that never takes a break or complains about your cooking. But the real magic of the Roomba comes in when you have kids. Suddenly, all those Cheerios, Goldfish, and crumbs that seem to appear out of nowhere are no longer your problem. The Roomba will pick them up, leaving you with a sense of peace and accomplishment.
And let’s not forget about the entertainment value. Kids love watching the Roomba move around the house like a little robot friend. It’s like having a pet without the mess (or responsibility).
Be prepared for jealousy (!) When I brought our dear Wilma (that's her name) home, I immediately jumped into raving about how smart she is, and how she does such a good job, and doesn't complain. I joked that she is the daughter I never had, and my new favourite child. Sometimes I forget how seriously kids take things. My middle guy popped his head over the chair he was sitting in and quietly asks "but who was your favourite kid before Wilma? Do you still like us?"
OMG. Of course I gave him a big hug and reassured him I was joking, a while trying to stifle my laughter.
But for real, if you work from home and have kids, do yourself a favour and get a Roomba. Your sanity will thank you.
