What is your least favorite chore that comes with having children?

 We all love our kiddos, but everyone has one chore that they just really wish someone else would do for them.  Mine is cleaning up the highchair and surrounding areas.  I know it's really something little, and maybe it's because I do it at LEAST three times a day, but I can't stand it.  Maybe it's because no matter how hard I try; nothing short of taking it outside and hosing it down really  ever gets all the crumbs, gunk, and everything else out of all the little cracks.  I dont even keep the cushion on it anymore because it was just nasty.  But  really I think the thing that bothers me most about it is that after I get it and the floor clean, I still have to  clean the rest of kitchen......again..(sigh)

 

Anyway so I am just curious to see what chore you lovely ladies would be happy to pawn off!!!

I hate scrubbing the shower...I do it but I hate it because it's so time consuming...it's tile and I have to make sure it's scrubbed good or I don't feel like it's clean enough for the kids to step foot in.

 It's the easiest thing in the world but I hate sweeping every 10 seconds in the kitchen.  Most of my children are big enough that the shouldn't have to crumb all over everything all the time!

Keeping my kitchen floor clean, I feel like I have to sweep it every 5 minutes and mop it more than once a day....but I don't!! I used to, but my Dh said I was getting OCD over the floor,lol! Now I sweep it in the am and pm and mop it every other day.

Laundry.....it's a never ending job. Wash.....dry......fold......put away and it starts all over again before I'm even done!!

Now that the kids have gotten older, they have picked up the slack and do alot of the chores that I can't stand.  If I had to pick 1, I'd have to say cleaning up vomit because it makes me want to vomit! lol  I usually leave it for hubby to clean up or the boys have learned to clean it up themselves.

When they were babies I hated changie poopy diapers, I almost puked every time.

Cleaning up after them.  Before kids I could clean on the weekend and maybe vacuum once during the week.  Now I am constantly cleaning up to make the house look nice.  As soon as DS is down for a nap or for the night I start cleaning up again and as soon as he is up it looks like a tornado just came through!
