I keep the house pretty clean all day but with a toddler and infant it gets kinda messy within a matter of minutes... I tidy up before hubby comes home so it doesn't look messy during dinner time and we can all relax better, do you do the same?

 No. He gets home at 2:30 most days. I do have the kids pick up before dinner though.

Lol no. But I work full time and he gets home before me. When I was on summer vacation I kept the house clean. Not for him though... for me ;).

I pick up after her all day long just to pick up, not really for him though.

I try to pick up throughout the day (mostly for my own sanity,) but DD will often make it impossible to have things looking great for DH's arrival.

I do my deep cleaning while my daughter is at school and hubby gets home around 3:30 so it's still clean when he comes home. I straighten up right before dinner so that afterwards it's just dishes and wiping down counters. That way after bath time we can have relaxed family time before bed.

I usually clean throughout the day. Some days the kids are messier than others, while some days they hardly make a mess. So it varies, but I try to pick up some before the DH gets home, so that way it doesnt look to terribly bad but I don't do to much because they usually make a huge mess again after dinner. But at least I attempt to start the clean up on those messy days. But I don't do it for him, I do it because no one else in the house is going to do it but me. haha.

I have a baby that is just beginning to crawl and a toddler so, like OP, my house gets messy very quickly. So I usually clean up at least the living room before DH gets home. Then he helps me really clean the whole house on the weekends....

Yes! I get more done in the ten minutes before he gets home than I do all day!
Ok I'm kidding. But there are days when I don't feel I did enough. And start rushing around and make it look A LOT better than it did. Lol
