Mom’s Real-Life Cleaning Guide is Hilarious Parenting TRUTH

True confession: I’ve never been the best housekeeper. But compare a before and after of my home showing it NOW vs. BEFORE I had kids, and before I had kids makes it look like a SHOWPLACE. Now I’ve got five people living up in here and still only ONE that does most of the cleaning! Although, my sainted husband does handle pretty much ALL the laundry so big ups to HIM! My oldest two do the dishes, but I have to police that. Last night my middle “forgot” to do  her chore of loading the dishwasher and this morning I have a sink full of dishes to contend with—but ONLY if we want clean utensils. Ha.

The cleaning struggle is REAL, and the constant maintenance can be pretty defeating, honestly. That’s why I LOVE this handy cleaning guide created by the wickedly funny Meredith Ethington of Perfection Pending. I REALLY love her Facebook page; she’s hilarious and she keeps it real! I mean, if you’re GOING to have to mop the floor for the 78th time in one day, you might as well have a good laugh to go along with it, right? Check out her hysterical “guide” to a “clean house” below!
