Cleaning Question....

Do any of you moms just hate cleaning some days? I know I get so exhausted I just cant clean some days! Especially when there are 2 toddlers running along behind me making things a mess again!

  • Funny enough I was talking about that on facebook yesterday,I love a clean house but living with a man makes it hard. There are days when I feel like I would just sleep in and forget all the mess around me because I get so sick of putting things in their places only to see it messy within 3 seconds.
    I do get upset when he throws his stuff on the floor when it only take a minuite to find a hammer to put the dirty colthes,so yes I do get tired of cleaning but unfortunately I do it everyday,after all I have a baby in the house.

  • Yes, there are days when I really hate having to clean. Our house is small (under 650 sq ft) and with 5 of us living here there is quite a bit of stuff, and if it does not take much for the house to look trashed! Some days it seems like no matter how much I clean the "not me" monster is right behind me messing up.

  • I don't hate cleaning but I don't love it either. Ya, sometimes I am just exhausted and I just don't do it! Sorry, but sometimes there are other things that are more important than whether or not the house got dusted!!! Like mt sanity LOL

  • I do the same thing! It gets very frustrating, but also it just drains my energy when my 1 and 3 year olds come up right behind me and undo what I've just done over and over again. Although it's great to have a clean and organized house, sometimes it just isn't worth my sanity to clean up a pile of board books for the 100th time that day. I used to feel really bad, but then I learned that if I just waited for them to go to sleep then I could clean in peace and most things could be accomplished in an hour or two. I wish they would take a nap at the same time so I could at least clean the bathrooms during the day.
