My tip: I have started leaving my toddler in his booster seat after our meals until I have finished cleaning up our meal.
The distractions made my cleanup time drag on. (I often came back into the kitchen an hour later and realized I still hadn't done dishes or even wiped the table.) The messes he made while I was distracted would be another thing I would have to deal with later. I tell ya...it was never-ending. Just to cleanup a meal.
Now, it's quick, it gets done right after our meal and everybody can leave the dining room at the same time.
