  • totally a huge mess thanks to my 2yr olds ambitious house wrecking skills ! I actually had a clean house before toddler. When she first got mobile I about drove myself nuts picking up after her. now I wait till she is in bed at night and kick it out of the way. or if Im feeling unusually ambitious I'll throw most of it into a large tub I got for her toys!

  • Definitely toddler. I THOUGHT it was a mess with my baby...then she learned to walk! Now she's 2 and holy cow! I can only clean at naps and bed time too, but lately, being pregnant, nap time is my nap time too. I just try to keep it livable at this point lol. Hubby has started helping out more when he gets home too if I look particularly exhausted.
