Yes but my 2 year old is only half so. Nope. And HELL NO. My kitchen, which you walk straight into when I open the door, is trashed, I have laundry everywhere. While not horrible it looks bad. I put the sahm sterotype to shame. There are no fresh baked cookies, clean laundry, and pristine rooms. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

There is no way I would let a surprise camera crew in my home most days!! The past few day my house has been pretty clean, not perfect, but I wouldn't be embarassed. I, OTOH, am usually in need of a shower and presentable clothes! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I don't think they are total surprises. A little OT but I know they film Extreme Makeover Home Edition to make it look like the people are surprised when they pull up but a month or so ago they filmed one on the next block. After the crew had been there pretty much all day a black limousine pulled up and shortly after we saw the big bus go into reverse, then slowly pull up and then heard Ty Pennington shouting "Good Morning ... Family". It was about 4 in the afternoon! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> They did that a couple of times, the bus going into reverse and Ty Pennington's signature shouting. Dh and I thought it was pretty funny that they kept redoing that part but the funniest part was earlier in the day when I saw someone coming up to my fence in the back yard, I went outside and it was a member of their film team asking if they could give my dog a treat because he was barking too much and interrupting their filming! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Of course, I let the dog inside.

I'd let ya in. I'm dressed and I'm actually having a good hair day.<br><br>
My house is pretty much clean except for the kitchen - I still have the pan on the stove from making eggs for breakfast, and I need to unload the dishwasher so I can load it again.

My house is relatively clean although the kitchen could be a little better.<br><br>
And I am in jeans and a sweatshirt. With makeup and hair done, as today was our playgroup day and I like to look as good as the other mamas.

Sure, you can come in. The house is neat & in order...I did just get home from shopping so I'm in my PJ's relaxing & trying to get comfy. So as long as you don't mind me in my jammies...come right on! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Naked almost 3 year old over here, the floors are pretty clean, most the dishes are done, the bedrooms are a disaster, the bathroom needs some help, the tub isn't draining so it has foggy water in it...<br>
If I answered the door, I have a breast milk stain on the left side, but at least my hair is brushed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> (yesterday it would not have been brushed..... feeling kinda dragged down lately)<br><br>
Today probably would be the best day for Oprah to stop by <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

My baby is in a diaper but my other kids are clean and dressed. I am bathed, my hair is brushed and pulled back in a clip and my skirt and top are clean. My home is somewhat picked up but not to most peoples standards. There are pots and pans that need washing, a moutain of clean laundry to fold and put away and my kitchen floor has toys and 10 lbs of potatoes dumped on it. There are some boxes along the walls but I have vacumed recently. So it's not trashed but I would not let a camera crew in.

I hope they let them know in advance. My house is a wreck right now!<br><br>
I might let you in but not Oprah and cameras.

People I know are always welcome, because when you come to my house, you get what you get. My children are quite fond of being naked except for underwear/diapers. There's smushed, dried food on the awful shag carpeting where the kids eat (I plan to vacuum at some point this week). I finally got a shower at 2pm during the little one's nap, and put on a bra(!) afterwards. Mostly because dh just left town for work, and I plan to hit up a restaurant for one of their awesome salads that I always crave, especially when I'm pregnant. But if I didn't have to go farther than putting garbage in the garage? I'd put my pajamas back on.<br><br>
As for filming it... depends what day it was and my mood. If I was belligerent and in an I-don't-care-what-anyone-thinks-of-me mood, probably. Or if the deal would get me new wood floors to replace the horrific-ness that our shag is or a new kitchen that'd work better for us. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

Yes, I'm dressed. All the kids are dressed- well, mostly.<br><br>
The house is semi-clean. It's not disgusting or anything, but definately not people-we-don't-know-acceptable.<br><br>
Cameras, hell no. Well, depending on what people want to see. All 3 kids have a stomach virus, known in our home as "The Throw Ups". Not something most people would want to watch on TV. If people showed up here right now, I'd tell them to grab a towel or a barf bucket and get to work <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

It's really nice music and I like to hear that. I collected many music tracks from around the world that could represent different genres of music. I found out in this research that lounge music genre is the most relevant to casino audience. That's why many players from around the world like this music genre and many online facilities are using it.
