Not sure if this is the right place, but 33 weeks pregnant with #3, other kids are 7&4, 4 year old now in preschool 4 days a week. I had expected to get the house super organised and clean before baby but it's just not happening! I get on with my to-do list and something comes up - most recently head lice & worms - god that's a lot of cleaning/combing/ washing!!!
Back on track and this morning I find mould in the office downstairs. I hate cleaning/house organisation so I'm not the most efficient at it, but we have 4 bedrooms, lounge, rumpus, 2 bathrooms and an office. Washing, shopping, cooking, tidying/cleaning up main living areas etc seems to take most of my time (well there are also all those hospital appointments). I just never seem to get to the deep cleaning stuff (cleaner is in the plan soon). I guess I just wonder do people with organised, clean houses literally spend all their day doing housework???? When we had my other kids we lived in much smaller units. Sure there was mess and clutter and I thought a big house would be great, but I just can't keep up with everything. DP has well paid job so I don't need to work, but he works long hours and outside space is high maintenance too so he doesn't do any cleaning. If his mum was here she would sort it all out no problem, but she's a little dynamo and would spend all day cleaning. Is that what people do? I am totally naive because I lived so much of my life in little flats that needed next to no cleaning??
Sorry this is just turning into a vent. Pregnancy is taking it's toll on me but I'll have even less time when the baby is born. A big house is great with 3 kids but this one is such high maintenance I want to downsize LOL!
