I have a very high needs daughter. I rarely get to put her down. When I get the chance I always clean the house. I'll scrub as much as I can spotless before dd needs attention again. I'll be satisfied with how the house looks. Within HOURS dh has made the house just as dirty as it was before I cleaned it! I keep asking him to just keep it the way I had it by doing simple things like putting dishes into the dishwasher instead of the counter, throwing away all trash instead of setting it on the desk/counter right next to the garbage can, but all of this goes right over his head. The thing that really gets me is that he'll complain that the house is dirty! So when I'd really love to enjoy an hour not being touched, instead I'm cleaning up after him. How do I get him to just keep the house clean after I've done the hard stuff? It feels like I have 2 kids!
