If you have kids then it is endless literally. Endless. Just never trade perfectly cleaned house for everyones sanity.If there are days where the house is a mess but you are enjoying your kids.dont worry. If you dont have kids its ok to still let housework wait now and then to enjoy.
yes, kids do make it impossibly endless. they are my little hurricanes leaving destruction in their path. I'm sure them being so little has a lot to do with it, one day chore charts will rule their little worlds! haha Yes, True. Quality time counts
I'm assuming you got kids. With children around house work is never finished. You will have to come up with a strategy. I have been that situation too but I put a strategy in place. If you pull it, fix it. It took sometime to get in rooted but it did. During the time I had become a drill sergeant. But eventually it worked. It can be very stressful doing the same thing repeatedly every day but putting the right measures in place will off load some of the stress. I teach my kids to be responsible if a mess is made they better clean it up. Oh and that goes for the father too. I hope you find a way to minimize the house work all the best.
the main point is when you clean the house, make sure the rest of the family members also help around, keep tidy. If kids are young like toddlers, you might as well wait until he is asleep, then start cleaning
Hi Ashly, This is very frustrating, and I feel for you. I agree with the other answerers here that young children make it more challenging to keep a house clean. As soon as kids are old enough to get toys out, they can learn to put them way too. Make it a fun ritual where you work together instead of approaching it as a chore. Kids can also put clothes in a hamper, stow bathroom items in a favorite holder, and straighten beds a little. Everyone needs to be accountable for little messes and pitch in. Kids want responsibility, so this is a good starting point. Also, think of the biggest problem. Is it clutter and neatness or actual dirt? Bathrooms and kitchens are the most important rooms to keep clean. Be kind to yourself. You're doing the best that you can:)
thank u very much! my oldest is 6 and my youngest is 9 months. i believe it is time to start a chore chart or point system for the oldest. the only woman in a house full of dirty boys lol. i shall remember to be kind to myself you are totally right!
