sweep your floors ?? I feel like I am sweeping all day long and it never is clean ... there are 2 small kids and there are 3 dogs in the house (one is a tea cup and spends most of the day laying on the couch so really 2 .. ) But I am wondering if this is normal cause I mopped last night and swept this morning and it looks like I haven't cleaned for days in here .. OH and the dogs are walked so its not like they are running dirt in and out all day.. 

Please bump if you vote or leave a comment that would be nice :o)

I used to be a clean freak and now that ds is two and always dropping things.. I tend to not clean as much as I used to.  Seems to be as soon as I sweep and mop the kitchen floor he goes in there 10 minutes later and drops his juice cup and it splatters all over the place.  Same way when I vaccuum.. never fails!  So I used to sweep atleast twice per day now i'm lucky if I do it twice per week just because I would be doing it over and over again.  No thank you  :)

Depends on the day for us. Usually I sweep sometime in the afternoon and then again before bed after most of the traffic in the house has died down. Well and after meal times at the table but that's a pretty small area.

You didn't have an option for me.  I sweep once a day.  I do care that it gets dirty again, just don't have the energy it takes for the continual upkeep.

I'm a toe-stubbing, coffee drinking, loud laughing, chocolate addicted, chunky mom with a totally inappropriate sense of humor.
Educated moms don't ASSume that parenting choices are one size fits all.

I sweep like every other day.  The floors are constantly dirty.  I sweep and 10 minutes later there's another mess.  I just don't see the point in trying to keep them sparkling clean 24 hours a day.  It just isn't realistic around here.
