Yes, my house is frequently a disaster. When my dd was younger and actually held still at times besides when she was sleeping ( :LOL ) my house looked really nice. Now, it is pretty bad but I've frankly just given up which was really hard for me to do. I'm a clean freak at heart, but spending time with my dd is much more important to me. I don't really entertain anyone besides close family so it really isn't that big of a deal right now.
Anna is like this most of the day:
and I end up like this:
if I try to clean while she is awake and playing. I do let her have about 20 min of Sesame Street, etc in the am so I can empty the dishwasher or start laundry, and then I try to do other cleaning stuff while she is napping or my DH is home. Since we are in the middle of a huge remodel (where currently nothing is getting done
: ) it makes it much harder to get things organized, so I just focus on the main living areas and making sure things aren't NASTY. I try to keep meals simple and my DH helps out if I start going a little crazy trying to keep up. I can't imagine anyone else with a dc the same age as Anna get much done either.
P.S. Yes, she is asleep right now, otherwise she'd be helping me type or unplugging the computer
