Balance

I am a new stay at home mom and have done better getting all the things I need to get done. I would love some advice on how to get things done from those who have been doing it longer! I sometimes feel like my house should be clean always because i am home.

    In a way, it reminds me of Ma Ingall's and her cleaning schedule , which is how she got all that she had to do done!

      I was always doing something when my baby had down time. I put him or her in a bouncy seat after they had napped and were fed. I'd move the bouncy seat wherever I was working, as long as they could see me they were fine. Once they started fussy, I knew they had had enough and it was snuggle/nurse or nap time again.

      I love what the other ladies said too. Looking back, I think I did too much with my first two and made having a clean home more important than it should have been. I was an incredible neat-nic and am slowly recovering. ;)

        Thank you ladies for the support and advice! I agree that this time is precious and i take full advantage of my daughter wanting me around! I spend a lot of time with her even when things are piling up. I have gotten better bout getting things done here and there. I just get the feeling when family and friends come over that they think i should have a spotless home because i am a stay home mom, anyone else ever felt this way?

        Sometimes, but I think I put more pressure on myself than they did on me. I was worried about what they would think.
