I’m not gonna lie to you, housekeeping has never been a skill of mine. I struggle with day to day cleaning, and I resent having to pick up after other people. For me, I have to pretty much have a motivation tape playing in my head all day, “You can do it!” “It will look so nice when it’s done!” “Clean dishes are fun!” Ok, that last one is stretching it a little, but you get the point. Perseverance and a positive attitude are keys toward my goal of a clean, uncluttered home.
I am a busy Mom of two small kids and I can tell you from experience that kids are messy! Duh, right? Well it’s true! I have compared my kids to tornadoes before, they gather up little legos, dolls and various tiny pieces of toys in their path and then swirl them around the house, leaving a disaster everywhere.
