The "how do you judge a mom with a messy house" question got me a bit irritated!
I purge the kids toys 3-4 times a year. Same with clothes; thats usually twice a year (after summer, after winter) . I wash dishes as I cook, run the dishwasher every night, unload it every morning, and do a load of laundry once a day at least. Fold while I watch some DVR'd TV. I clean the toys and bedrooms every morning and night, because I dont like clutter. Basically I dont let things ever pile up. But that doesnt mean we dont play.. we play all day. I have a 2yo and 4yo.. they make messes all day, and we clean as we go.
Now, I know I am a slightly anal person but I do not "have way too much time on my hands" as was implied on the other post. Rather, I have no spare time because I spend it keeping a tidy house!
My question is: why the animosity? I dont understand why "tidy moms" are "bad moms" or not "fun moms" as some implied.

Haters are EVERYwhere! Haters: don't hate! Appreciate and celebrate! I wish we were friends; maybe I'd be more inspired to keep a more tidy house... YOU GO, Girl!

oh OP! i need to take lessons from u! lol i cannot figure out how to get things organized enough to have a "clean house". its not unclean by ur definition, but it is definitely not tidy either. I have 4 kids 5, 4, 2 and 3 months. I also home school. so with all of the normal mom chores and the home school, its practically impossible to keep the house clean let alone spotless. Any tips?
