So I’ve never exactly had the cleanest or tidiest home on the block. But now that we have two children under the age of 5, I can tell you that I probably win the title of messiest house in the neighbourhood. I have many mommy friends who have immaculate houses, and others who like me, have ‘well lived in’ homes. I often feel that we as mother’s, grade each other on the way our homes look. Almost to say that if our homes are well kept, than we must have it all figured out.
I’ll never forget the time that I found out my friend was secretly hiring a maid to come in once a week and clean up her messy home...
