Hi, I'm still waiting for the "I want to clean" gene to kick in...
I have 3 kids, 11, 2, and 1. I'm not very good at "finding time" to clean the house. I'm married to a wonderful patient man who cleans all the time--he's not the problem. It's me.
I do the laundry, but a lot of times, I don't put away the kids' clothes, and so even though the clothes are clean, they just sit in piles...they keep growing out of things and getting new things, and I hate to put the cute small things away. I get really exasperated with the constant dishes and no matter what I do, the floors are always a mess. Non-spill sippy cups spill everywhere, and I don't even care about the toys anymore..as in, there seems to be no point.
I'm not setting a very good example for my kids, and even though I'm tired and don't want to do it, I'm curious as to how other moms get their cleaning done?
It looks like I'm the one who has to do it, LOL, so any tips for making it fun and fast?
