Saying!!

"Good moms have messy floors, dirty kitchens, laundry piles, and happy kids"

It's so dumb to me lol. Why does that make you a good mom just cause your house is dirty? Why can't us moms who keep our house spotless be good moms to? Lol we can all be good moms should t reflect how my house looks! I know moms with messy houses who neglect their kids (and their house) so obviously the are not good moms.. But I also know moms who pay no attention to their kids all day & just clean. Don't matter what kind of house you can be a good mom. Rant over lol

Wow, I have never heard this saying. However, my house is clean, I am a neat freak and I do have a good child. Thank God.

I'm a clean freak so I do clean a lot, but I also do things with my kids. I think sometimes though, that I do need to clean less, and play with them more. I'm working on it though.

I could see why it would bother people. I don't take it literally, though. I just take it to mean that "good moms" put their kids (happiness) before everything else.

Agreed! I think good moms also set a good example by keeping things relatively clean.

I agree. Rt now I'm on bed rest and things aren't the way I like them cleaned. Do I feel like a bad mom.
