Well, I won't let dd play with my peg container. All the pegs go in facing the same way so that when I hang the washing, I can grab a handful and they are all facing the same way to peg the clothes straight away. If she tips them out, its a disaster in my little head
I'm very pedantic about washing in particular. I don't mix wash (I do a load of dd clothes seperately when her hamper is full, nothing has ever been washed with ours) and there is a very specific order things get hung on the line. When its dry, its then already 'grouped' to make it quicker to put away
Everything has its place here and although I'm not too bad with dd's play room, when it does get tidied, it has an order, books included.
Everyone says the biggest thing after having a baby is to accept help from family/friends but that would have just caused too much stress for me.

My mum has no more children at home and it's just the 2 of them. She still mops everyday. And sometimes twice!!! I know where I got my OCD from.
Was having a convo with a friend at a party not long ago and he was e plain if how his wife is very similar to me in certain cleaning things we do etc.
I then proceeded to ask him if he knew if she counted things.
He was confused.
I'm trying to work out if my counting things all the time has some kind of connection to my slight OCD?
Eg. I'll count the washing as I put it in the washing machine.
Count pavement lines when walking on sidewalk
Count the tiles in the shower
Now that I've written that down I've just realised it doesn't sound very normal😧😧😧

I'm an OCD mum too!
Kitchen gets wiped twice a day, after breakfast before we head out and after dinner.
Couch/cushions/ottoman gets straighten every night before bed and in the morning if dd has been sitting there. I cannot stand waking up or coming home to a messy living room or kitchen.
I do one load of washing and hang in on the clothes dryer every night. Every night I iron the previous days washing.
Saturday I wash dd day care clothes and Sunday they are in her drawer laid out for the next 5 days.
I vacuum tiled area every evening. Bedrooms once a week. Mop the floors twice a week.
Dd is clean and matches all the time, she has outfits and I do not mix and match, even DH knows this!

*No shoes in house.
*Everything in every cupboard/wardrobe perfectly lined up. All clothes hangers match right thru the house. Perfectly spaced. Our wardrobes look like a shop display.
*Theres a system for everything ie morning routine, routine for leaving the house (tidy) an after dinner routine and a going to bed routine. Its all about keeping the house imaculate.
*When we leave the house I make dh and kids get in car while I spend 10mins running round tidying up. I hate going out for the day knowing the house is untidy.
*I'm a germaphobe so omg I literally sterilise the entire house when someone is sick.
*You could ask me where anything is in my house and I could tell you its exact location
*I dont mop as I dont think it does a good job. I get on my hands and knees and hand wipe the floors.
*I vacuum then get on my hands and knees picking up what the vacuum misses.
*I wipe down my kitchen cupboards every day.
Ive been like this for so long its just part of my daily routine and doesnt take too long but I know its excessive. Especially when the first thing people say when they come into my house is omg its so clean and organized.

DH used to complian that my morning and evening cleaning frenzy was annoying, until I made a point of never putting his shed tools back in the right spot after I had used them (he has the tool outlines drawn on the wall in the spot that they are supposed to go). Two can play at that game lol
I remember the early days with DH when we were dating.... He had an immaculate kitchen and an extensive spice rack all in alphabetical order......
