Do you ever feel like balancing the house, work, and frankly life, in general, is just too much? You want a cleaner house but let’s get real, some days you are just grateful that the dishes in the dishwasher are clean, especially when all of the other dishes are spread out across the counter tops with a thick layer of gunk on them.
The thing is, we’re moms. Life gets busy. It’s not that we don’t want a clean house it’s just that somewhere in between trying to find the lost shoe and trying to change the baby’s blowout that cleaning the house goes on the back burner.
Cleaning Tips For Moms
It’s taken me years to get to the point where my house is clean, or at least mostly clean. I’ve had many nights of dirty dishes but the good news is that through much trial and error I’ve come to discover several cleaning tips for busy moms.
I’m not going to claim to know or even understand why it is that you have a hard time cleaning, it could be that perhaps you suffer from ADHD and can’t stay focused, in which case I would suggest reading this book. Or, maybe you are a mom of many littles and by the time you put the dinner in the oven they have taken all of the clothes out from the bedroom drawers and have drawn all over the house in permanent marker. I speak from experience. Even still, it could just be that by the time you’ve gotten off of work and have picked the kids up and cooked dinner the last thing you want to do is clean, especially if you have to prepare for the next day. Dear Momma, if that’s you, know that you are amazing and don’t doubt it for a moment.
The thing is, almost all moms are wonderful, there are some exceptions there. Still, we live in a generation that rather than coming together as a tribe to raise our young we feel judged by the world around us for every decision made, and that includes our housekeeping skills or our lack thereof.
Perhaps something that is offered here will be of service to you so that when you come home you don’t feel overwhelmed by a growing to-do list but rather relaxed in an oasis.
