BF's mom is mad at me because my house isn't clean.

I'm not going to lie and say my house is spotless. It's not. It's a mess most days. It's not dirty or grimy. There are just clothes and toys everywhere. We just moved in and we literally had nothing expect what we could fit in our car. We have a dresser but we really don't have the storage space we need. So it's messy.

I am working TWO jobs right now to support us. BF just got a job after us living here for 3 months. It's been me paying rent, bills, groceries, gas, everything.

You would think his mom would get on him for cleaning but no she blames me and says "it's obvious your just not the home maker type" yeah no shit. I couldn't be if I wanted to because I have to work two jobs to support your son and our daughter!

I'm sorry but when my days don't end until 11pm I am not trying to come home and put away the mess that BF and dd made all day.

I'm not mad at BF. It's frustrating that he doesn't clean like I would like but we are working on that. The state of our house should not be his mother's concern considering not once have we ever actually invited her over.

And honestly most days the living room isn't even bad. It's just our room because we make a mess when trying to find clothes to wear.

Vent over

Edit because I wanted to add that i think it's so funny she tries to coach me about being a home maker yet she doesn't have a job but her house is far from spotless. It smells like dog half the time and she constantly has random shit just laying out. And there are always dishes in her sink.

 So why hasn't he been cleaning up?  He lives there.  Real men clean up after themselves, and have dinner waiting when the woman is working and he isn't.  She should be mad at HIM.

Tell your BF to grow the fuck up and act more responsible.

I agree and he's getting better at it. It's just taken us all some time to adjust. This is the first time both of us have lived by ourselves- no roommates or parents or family members. But yea I don't get why he is some how exempt from cleaning. I told her when he gets 2 jobs ill do most of the cleaning but until then...

If you need furniture, go on the free seen of craigslist.

Tell her to grab Mr clean and come clean your place since it bothers her so damn much.

He just recently got a job but its in construction so he doesn't even work some days. Like today it rained all day so he was home.
