I had what a day today! There's nothing like having a friend of yours say: "I can get your house clean in a matter of an hour and top to bottom too with the Baby!" Love her, but this friend is single and doesn't have nor want children. To myself I'm saying that she does not know what it's like! As a first time mother, I don't think it's easy especially if you want to be a great mother. I'm also saying to myself that maybe she's right, that I should be able to keep the house clean and organized (not that it's so bad, but I know it's not like it was before Baby). I feel like I'm failing as a mother/homemaker. My better half works 13 hours/5-6 days a week and I really can't expect him to do so much when he comes home. He does as much as he can which is a great deal. Am I failing at this? Is anyone going through/been through the same? If so, Thank You in advance for your help and thoughts!
