Parenting isn’t easy, and while moms and dads love spending time with their kids, sometimes they just need five minutes to themselves.

But for many moms, having a little time to themselves is a big concern — with kids running to Mom with questions, meal requests, and complaints about their siblings.

As a result, many moms invent their own little ways to find time for themselves — and sometimes they have to get creative.

One mom who shares her maternity stories on TikTok thinks she’s found an ingenious way to find time for herself so she can take a nice, relaxing shower.

Kay Taylor from Australia posted a video describing her ingenious method and encouraging others to do the same.

In the video posted to her channel @flyyoufool8, she says: “Moms and Dads don’t open this when your kids are around. I have a new technique, you can thank me later.”

Captioning the video “Parenting done right-ish,” she asks other parents if they’re just as desperate for a break from their kids as she is.

She then instructs viewers to put a squirt of bleach in the sink to make the house smell like it’s just been cleaned.

Afterward, she pulls out the mop and instructs viewers to place it on the floor to make it look like it’s just been used.

Finally, she calls out to her children, “Guys, I just mopped the floors, you can’t come out for at least 15 minutes.”

When the obedient “OK” reply comes from her children, Kay points to the camera to show her trick actually works.

She winks at viewers, then says, “You’re welcome.”

Other moms commented on the video and shared their own parenting hacks that make their everyday lives easier.

One said: “Great tip for the toddler mums – hold up a baby wipe and threaten to clean their face guarantees they’ll run in the opposite direction.”

Another said: “I used to put on ABBA then they all disappeared. Has worked every time. That or they asked for help. As if by magic, they disappeared.”

But one mum said she needed one more tip – after long relying on the mop hack.

She said, “I used this every day for 10 years and finally they understood and sent me a different technique.”
