I just spent the whole morning cleaning the house. Picked everything up, cleaned the kitchen, cleaned the kids' bathroom, cleaned both kids' rooms, did the dishes, etc. Half way through cleaning the girls' room I just broke down and cried. I try so hard to have a nice house and home and the kids just don't care. They had thrown their stuff everywhere...clothes and toys just shoved in every corner. And that was after they "cleaned" it.
We just moved in so I promised them I'd go through and organize it all so they'd know where stuff went. $10 says that by tomorrow both rooms will be trashed.
My husband isn't any better. His clothes are all over the house and he no longer wants to get up with the baby at night (I'm running on about 3 1/2 hours of sleep right now).
At least the house is clean (or as clean as it can be without a mop).

I JUST started this book entitled "What Every Mom Needs", (MOPS website above) and it talks exactly about that. Feeling like our job is unimportant, unappreciated, no help, little sleep, etc. Yes, I've been there, and no, you are not alone.
