I'm not lazy, but I have decided that's not what I want to put my energy into.  I spend a lot of time with my toddler.  I make many of our meals fresh daily, breakfast, lunch, dinner and his 3 snacks.  I exercise and I make time to sleep at least 7 hours a day.  What is messy?  It's relative.  When I watch Hoarders, I feel very neat, but if I go to my friend's homes where everything is dusted and mopped daily and everything is in their place I feel like a failure and like people must be grossed out by my house.  How is your house?

My house is very clean. It really doesn't take much time to keep it clean. I work full time and spend plenty of quality time with my kids. I think I can spare 20 minutes a day to pick up. My kids have chores too.

I'm a FT working mom, so my house is messy 99% of the time. I feel like poop when I go to a friend's house and the apologize for the "mess" when there's only like one dirty dish in the sink. Oh well. Working 40+ hours doesn't give me much time to clean and hang out with the kids. That's my excuse.

I try my hardest to keep a clean house but it doesnt usually work now that its summer time ill be watching 4 extra along with my 3..theres sand and dirt everywhere from the park. i sweep atleast twice a day my 1 and 2 year old think its hilarious to throw all their food on the floor..laundry is ridiculous in my house..i refuse to put sheets on my 1 years olds mattress because he pees through his diaper everysingle night. my bathrooms are probably the cleanest.

I'd rather take the little bit of time to keep it clean. The house just functions better that way. And I'm a firm believer that clutter and mess causes stress to children.

Clean! Just sweeped, vaccuumed, and mopped!

I have my days. But usually the mess accumulated takes no more than 5 minutes to clean.
