    I'm starting to feel like I'm either really easy going or really messy with all the people saying they'd 'have to sweep several times a day or get the vacuum out everytime'. Wouldn't even occur to me. I wouldn't even notice. The dogs track dirt inside all the time, I vacuum once a week, I really couldn't care less. I'm going to go with the first option that I'm just really easy going, not messy LOL

    I always think it seems like I have more time to relax and read books than other people I know....now I realise it's because they're all vacuuming! haha

    I only sweep a couple of times a day when hubby tracks dirt in because it's massive clumps of dirt and bits of wood from the armfuls he carries.

    Someone asked about kids parties - I don't do shoes off then, I just clean afterwards.

    When we lived on a farm with a wood fire, if DH was traipsing clumps of mud or dropping wood through the house then HE would be sweeping several times a day. I'm with hilldweller and the other weekly vacuumers.

    Believe me I've tried. His only jobs are to make sure there is wood at the back door and sweep the hearth every night. He does one of them.
    Although if I whinge enough he will do other things, and does bring bub to me in bed at night.

    Do your kids put shoes on every time they go outside and then take them off again?
    Yep, shoes off when coming inside. My boy doesn't go continually in and out though

    Mum has a little sign that is a cow with the words 'please remooooove your shoes' hanging below it. Polite and too cute to offend.

    Here's what I'm doing:

    1) dropping hints (eg when ds1 comes inside yelling "DS, shoes off shoe rack please."

    2) moving the shoe rack to a more obvious place near the door

    3) getting a shoes off sign, then on the next visit asking for the shoes to be taken off

    My 6yo wouldn't let him get away with it. She'd be calling after him "dad, you're going to be in trouble with mum" and hand him the dustpan! He's the opposite of domesticated so it was a big win for me!
