Ok ladies, I am going to spill a secret that is VERY hard for me to admit. It has been something I have had internal arguments with myself for a few years now, and having Hannah along with all my work stuff and the other 3 kiddos I have deemed it time to bite the bullet and do it.
I am looking at getting a housekeeper! I know, I know. It takes away part of my Mom card and it hurts me to say it. However if I have to look at the dirty toilet that has been “kid cleaned” or “man cleaned” I may very well lose my mind! I know the kids try their best when they are trying to help out with things like the bathroom. I know Tom tries (although his cleaning skills are below the kids) when he tries to deep clean. But really we all know that there is nothing more satisfying then a bathroom that sparkles. Even if it is only for a few minutes!
This is a BIG step for me, it is a struggle that I am dealing with that I even have the thought of getting help with the things on my to do list. But for the sake of my sanity and the stress level in the house I have gone looking. Looking also means I need to look in a place. That place ended up being Care.com.
