Surviving sleep deprivation one day at a time with dd (Oct '11) & ds (Oct '08).
A doula who married a cop & became a mama to 3 boys: G 12/22/00, my rainbow baby B 2/2/07 and L 2/10/10 my CBA2V baby, waiting for my little caboose late February 2013 & always remembering my two angels 2006 & 2012.
And during the day we don't wear shoes around the house, only put them on before going out.
We have 3 bathrooms, the first one is quite small, the second one is an ensuite, the third is the biggest but is more of a guest bathroom that we only use ourselves when we are in the downstairs area...but we don't shower in there.
Actually I think our bathrooms don't show dirt much because they all have really horrid old tiles from the 70's, in very busy patterns, so the dirt really doesn't show, lucky for me!
Also I put bathmats down which get changed often, and I also vacuum weekly, and mop every 2nd week.
I guess when I get my wish of renovated bathrooms, the floors may show dirt more easily...
What I do is after using a towel a bunch of times, I then lay it on the floor outside the shower for a day or two, then when I feel the need to, I scoot said damp towel all around the floor until I reach the doorway, then pick it up and toss it in the wash or the laundry bin. I do the same with the kitchen floor, except it's a damp kitchen towel in there. I am an expert scooter, and my dd loves to scoot around too. Good leg exercises, also, heh. Once every few days I'll use a washcloth or some sort of smaller towel and wipe around the "edges" of the bathroom and kitchen to get that stuff more easily too. Hope this helps a bit- you can do it!
P.S. Hooray, it's Fall!

It drives me batty, especially since 2 of 3 of my kids has a runny nose and is missing the garbage.
Dh, Me , DD 10 , DD 7 , DD 4
We , , , , not in that order
Best thing I did for easy floor cleaning in the bathroom is to get my hair cut super short.
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
because DS usually plays in there, there is water on the floor in the evenings. DH has a conniption if there is water on the floor and he steps in it in his socks, so, after DS plays, i take a towel and wipe/mop the whole floor, and then DH is fine because he doesn't have wet socks and the floor is clean. i pretty much do the same thing with the kitchen, because DS likes to "wash the dishes" and that means getting a fair bit of water on the floor, so i mop that one up quickly too.
