I am a homeschooling mother of 4so we have LEGO structures all over the place, bookshelves in every room, and the children's clutter everywhere!
The kitchen is fairly clean; it has to be so we don't get sick and also with 6 people we go through dishes fast! (The floor is sticky daily but also someone gives it a quick sweep and spot clean daily).
My room is neat under the children clutter! My bathroom is clean except my 3yo is afraid of flushing so close your eyes, close the lid and flush if you want a fresh bowl! LOL!
The children's bathroom looks like a rock concert was performed in there! Wet towels, toothpaste spills, toilet paper streamers, mud on the counter, full bowl - you know that rhym (sp?) about if it's yellow and if it's brown? Well my children don't! LOL!
I remember my house being clean growing up; I helped clean! I like to clean but I get tired with so many messes and so few helpers so my house is messier! My mom says the house was messy when I was little - I just don't remember! My mom only had 2 children and we were at public school during the week so the house didn't get as cluttered.
