My advice is to encourage your little girl to help by sorting socks from the rest of the laundry and if she knows her colors to match them, help wash the dishes or dry them, pick up any toys on the floor and put them where they go. As for the 7 week old...have you tried holding him and doing chores? simple things like putting dishes away with one hand, picking up a few things off the floor. Otherwise he is at the age where he can get used to noises like the vacuum running. You should always try to make time for yourself, take the cleaning day by day. for instance instead of cleaning every room tonight, clean the living room today, bathroom tomorrow, kitchen the next day and so on. That way it doesn't feel like all you ever do is clean. Hope this helps out some! Good luck!
