We have company coming over for dinner tonight; so, last night after putting JD to sleep I began tidying up the house, when I finally took a minute to look at the clock it was already past midnight and I still needed to vacuum! Just as I finished up in the kitchen, the hubby started vacuuming the living room (I thought he had gone to bed, but I guess he felt a little sorry for me and decided to help) and this is when the thought hit me “who vacuums at midnight”? Before having JD we would hear the neighbor upstairs vacuuming at the strangest hours of the day and honestly couldn't figure out why, but now I get it, she's a working mom with a toddler. The hubby and I both work full time and we hate doing housework on the weekend, that's our “family time” and we would rather be out and about having fun. When I was home with JD, it was much easier to keep the house tidy, I would clean early in the morning or during naps or swing time and our place always looked nice; but now that I'm back to work, the only time I have to clean, do laundry, iron and of course blog, is between 10pm and midnight (sometimes 1am). So, the answer to the question is, we do! I will never again look up in puzzlement when my neighbor vacuums at midnight and I will always be an awe of moms like my friend Vero, who works two jobs, has three boys and still manages to keep her house clean!
