Juggling a baby, working part time, and keeping the house clean...does it ever get easier?

I love being a mother! But I didn't realize it was going to be so hard to keep the house clean! on top of that working. I want to spend as much time with my baby as i can, but i can't just let the house be unlivable either. Any advice out there?

I felt the same way & stressed over that. I started getting rid of stuff. I live in a house that is approx 3200 square feet. When my kids were little, I worked part time, had a dog & had 3 exchange students living with us. I managed to get laundry done in the evenings & did the housework (standard) in the mornings. I got the kids to help as they got older but when they were little, I carried them around with me. I am very social & made sure to get out with the kids. Don't let it bother you. As long as you cover the basics like garbage, laundry, dust & floor cleaning, you won't die. No one expects perfection. Plus we are our worst critics. I used to say, don't mind the mess only to be reminded that there wasn't any to other people's standards.
