Cleaning is hard















Ok this is why a lot of parents of babies/toddlers don't like to clean. You might be able to tell that my sofa, tables, mirrors, and windows are sparkling clean because I dusted them. If you look in my bathroom you'll see there isn't a smidge of soap scum in sight. All of the dishes in the kitchen have been washed, and the counters wiped clean. There's even BBQ pork in the slow cooker, BUT THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS IN THE MEANTIME! While you're busy cleaning one part of the house, the contents of the rest of the house are emptied out onto the floor. Images of "the man rolling the boulder up the hill, only to have it fall back down again" are coming to mind. Well now I'm too tired to do any more cleaning. I'll have to tackle the rest of this in my daily mad dash before Devin gets home.

Oh dear! That is SO frustrating, I know. Wish I had the answer for you. :) Maybe you could buy some of those Color Wonder markers or finger paints and set them up with that while you clean??? Good luck with the mad dash.

Yah, but the nice thing about color wonder paints is that they don't show up on anything but the paper! But it could turn into a goopy mess...I'm not sure! :)

OHHH I understand!! The thing is, last week, I scrubbed my grout with oxyclean, magic erasers and a toothbrush on my hands and knees. It too two days! But would one say that my grout is immaculately clean? Nope, it is more like covered in fisher price little people and dinosaurs.

Oh and you were so right in your Obama comment. I think some people have Obama confused with Jesus...
