It’s a good idea, but don’t forget that kids are clumsy af. They’ll make noise every 2 to 5 minutes and be like “shhhhhh you’ll wake her up” And the shhh will get louder every time.


My mom tried this. I woke her up, wanting to be a good kid but also ready to cry because I did NOT want to clean.


I’d have been afraid of getting in trouble if I didn’t wake them.


Not for me yet. My toddler while having no sense of time, also loves the vacuum and hates seeing anyone sleeping nearby and will actively try to wake them.
