    …Actually I think I might do that myself once mine are older, I'm still traumatised from my own lice experience in primary school!
    LOL. No, just poring out that it's a waste of type disinfecting the lounge.

    The only OCD thing I ever did was that ds had a set of clean pjs every single night up to the age of 5 . I was really anal about it. Not sure really why

    I'm in between both. I let my kids watch TV and play computer. But during those times I get cleaning done. If I'm not working I do loads of washing every day. Fill the line and dryer up. I sweep and mop nearly every day. Dishes get done several times a day if needed or I washing during cooking. We have take out like once a fortnight. I meal plan and cook from that. Food shopping once a week to my meal plan. Don't freeze food to reuse though. Gets thrown out if not eaten. My main laziness if the car. Been putting that off. Kids clean their own rooms so I can vacuum. Not lazy. Need to teach them these things. Same with putting their own clothes away once folded. I'm not their maid. I'm here to teach them

    Out fruit bowl is on the dining table, along with some paperwork.

    I grew up in a house that my mother kept immaculately. I don't want my kids to think that a house is more important to me than they are. I'm not saying you do, but that is how I felt growing up with a mother who was always cleaning and everything had a spot. I want my kids to feel comfortable at home. If they bring toys out, they have to take them back when they go upstairs for bath and bed or they know I will confiscate. They put their dishes in the sink when they're finished. If they spill something, no big deal, they wipe it up.
    I think its great to teach kids to put their toys away after they use them, I do that too. We do messy activities like painting, play do and glueing, but only one at a time! and i clean up after the activity. I try to have a good balance between teaching kids its ok to do really messy fun stuff, but its important to clean up afterwards.

    When both kids weren't at school we would do activities everyday which I would clean up or get them to help. I too like to teach them that once you have finished playing to pack it away. too bad with lego they are like "I'm not finished. I will do some more tomorrow" Lol ggrr

    I just seem to ALWAYS have something that needs to go back to someone!!
    I have an old bedride cupboard in my entryway with a expitit basket from ikea under it. I put everything to return in there. I then keep a list of whose is whose on my fridge notepad and date borrowed and date returned.

    This system works.

    I've probably seen/appraised/sold thousands of homes and yep people definitely have different ideas on what's Messy!
    I've seen some that made me want to literally be sick because of the smell/grime and I've seen many with plastic covers on the furniture/floors and one lady literally followed us around moping after us as we walked on her floor tiles!

    LOL! But I think there's a difference between a house being untidy and a house being dirty. If you're trying to sell, then yep, should look like a show home.

    Yes I often live in 'clean mess', I always have projects on the go, paperwork and toys. I've finally got DD (6) packing all her toys back into her room each night - looks like I've only got another 5 years of picking up after DS left then.
