  • SAHM.... here...

    With a newborn in arms, there's a minor lack in cleaning... I have 2 kids 4, and 2 months. We wake up, get both of them fed, try to remember to eat myself, sometimes I get caught up cleaning, because the baby usually sleeps for a min. after feeding... sometimes she's a pure screamer.... taking from me doing much of anything.

    I probably spend a couple of hours cleaning/picking up... An hour of cooking daily, 30-60 min... laundry every other day. An hour of play time outside, or inside with my son, doing arts n crafts or learning. Baths for kids, bath for me, clothes for me if I have time. eek...

    GOSH always busy. yup. lol

  • As soon as something is finished, there's something else to do, or the same job over again. I swear the laundry is breeding.

  • I'm a SAHM
    On nmy really busy days, total cooking & cleaning time 1-2 hours.
    On an average day, total cooking & cleaning time 1/2 hour -1 hour.
    That's the time I personally spend cooking &/or cleaning.

  • My kids are big enough to clean up after themselves. I suck at cooking. Maybe 1-2 hours a day for all housekeeping activities combined, including laundry.

  • Well, I spend probably about 1-3 hours preparing meals each day, because I make everything from scratch (bread and all) and that's not including clean up afterward. As far as cleaning my house, I spend probably 2 hours each day....not including laundry or cleaning up after meals though, in fact, I'm folding laundry right now. My day is super busy though, if I'm not playing with my daughter, I'm cleaning or cooking and during her nap, I work out and hopefully have time to squeeze in a shower, but usually not. Then my husband gets home and wants to watch a lonely book upstairs is calling my name.

  • Yeah, if I did what I should I would be doing it constantly. I just don't do it! I do a little here and there. I actually like cooking, but don't do it every day.

    Are you sure we don't tag team in the same household? :P

    There's always something that I COULD be cleaning. Whether it gets done is up to me. Usually it doesn't, lol. Our house is lived in, not spotless and pristine. I prefer it that way. There's no trash or nasty stuff laying anywhere, it's just general clutter like papers and stuff.
