I try and do a bit everyday- even just half an hour when the kids are in bed to clean and tidy the kitchen and one of the bathrooms. It helps keep on top of it if you can do that? Worth a shot?
Just do your best, you dont have to slack off, or let standards slide as a matter of fact you shouldn't let them slide, children learn from us if we teach them while growing up that something we once did that takes more effort to quit then they will learn just that when something gets more difficult just quit, which can in turn boil over into relationships.
"Trying to tidy up a house with kids in it is like shovelling snow while it's still snowing!"
Good saying that is!
Just like others, I do a little bit every day. Washing and folding every day (if I don't it gets too much), vacuuming a couple of times each week, kitchen & floors one day, bathrooms another.
If you both work full time maybe have a set time on a Saturday or Sunday (or day you are both home) and say DH takes 2 year old OUT of the house for 2-3 hours (or however long) so you can clean and then the next week maybe switch?
Then divide up the evenings. Like one cooks, the other washes, one does the bath & bed, other cleans up around the general household mess.
Could a fair and clear division work like that?

Tricky if you both work full-time. I know the days I work it's like people break in and make a mess when no-one is here. Agree with a cleaner!
However, for me being at home most days I find just keeping a routine and staying on top of it works well. While DS watches Playschool I have a shower and get ready for the day, then after brekkie I do the dishes, put a load of washing on, wipe down the bathroom and make the beds and vacuum. Only takes half an hour to an hour and DS is happy entertaining himself. Then the house is tidy and I can spend quality time with DS, and I just maintain it throughout the day by doing the dishes as they appear and doing more laundry, etc. It's so much easier to do a little bit everyday than a lot at once.
