I have been a stay at home mom since my oldest son who is now 3 years old was just 6months old. At the time we lived in a 2 bedroom apartment so it was just really easy to clean.
Now we have a house, a 9month old baby, and i babysit to help out my husband out and so i can earn so money on my own too just to prove i am not a lay person who can't get a job.
Well since this house and since i started babysitting i find it a lot more harder to clean up and keep the house clean. I try to make my cleaning days every Friday where i then do all the major cleaning like dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, moping and cleaning out the cat litter in the basement and the gerbil cages.
Well last week we had friends from Florida come visit us and stay with us for a week. My husband cleaned the whole basement while i cleaned the whole main floor but totally forgot the upstairs. After they left i did some more moping and picked up the house some more including cleaning up the upstairs. Well i am sick and tired of cleaning up everything in the house, toys, laundry, dishes, wiping table, putting shoes where they belong. So after all said and done i made house rules chart and went over it with my husband, my 3 year old, and the 2 boys i babysit for. Even though i have made House rules in the past to try to keep the house clean and some what more easier for me to clean on my cleaning day, it never works.
So my question is even though i am stay at home mom, how do you moms figure out ways to keep your house clean so you have less work to do on your regular cleaning days. And how do u stick to it
