I have a question for all you stay at home moms...

Does it feel like you can never "get ahead"? I am CONSTANTLY cleaning and doing laundry and yet, I never feel like I can get ahead of things. For instance, I will clean the house until it is all sparkly, then an hour later, it can look like a tornado went through it. Does anyone have any good tips for me? I could sure use them. My house isnt big, but its cozy and I love it. ALL my neighbors are amazing. Sure, we could use a bigger house but, then I think, "More to clean!".

I completely agree! Although I'm not technically a SAHM but a WAHM-I do child care. Only watch 2 kids in addition to my 2 though! I have been so overwhelmed lately and don't know what to do! If anyone gives you any tips please pass them along! :)

I'm in your boat as well, I'm also a WAHM, my oldest is in school and I have 2 little ones here all day with me. I try to get all the cleaning done in the morning before my work job starts in the afternoon and by the time dh comes home from work the house is trashed again. I have a hard time keeping up with laundry also. Sorry, no tips from me, but I'll keep checking back on your blog to see if anyone else has any as I need all the tips I can get at this point!

I do feel the same way, luckily my oldest she'll be 6 i March, attends Kindergarten full day so I just have my 1 year old with mebut still he can do a lot of mess for both of them!!! Then i start laundry and I feel it like I would never finish with it. Then I clean up and organize and in less than an hour it looks like a Tornado passed trough my family room. Then my husband arrives home and asks: What you been doing all day?? Oh,my, oh my!!!!
