My DF and I have been together for a long time, but he only moved in, in August. (He is not my son's father).
Recently he started making comments about my cleaning habits. Mostly that I'm "anal."
I just thought it was normal to clean like I do. The biggest things he finds weird are:
- i vacuum daily and sometimes more than once if needed (we have a cat)
- i steam clean the carpet and couches at least once a month (sometimes more if I have the energy)
- i do what he calls "spring cleaning" almost every weekend. (deep cleaning the bathroom/kitchen. reorganize my son's room. etc)
He always says "my mom never did that and her house is clean." And honestly MY mom never did that either. And I think both of their houses are not clean. Not necessarily disgusting, but not clean. I would never say that to them, but I wouldn't want to live there.
Is it really that out of the norm to clean daily and frequently?
Btw, I'm not a stay at home and work full time. Not that it matters imo.
