Scene: it is 4:00pm, all toys are in their proper holding places, floors are vacuumed and mopped, there is a load of laundry in, mom is on the couch (her back hurts), one daughter gets home soon, the other 2 children are watching a movie, dinner soon.
Now it is 5:30pm Scene: toys are ALL over, dinner dishes are getting dirty, mom is tired and thinks "did I just really clean this place and now it is such a mess?!?!"
Forget it......I am never cleaning again!!!!
Scene: it is the next day and mom finds herself picking up more toys and thinking the carpet could stand to be vacuumed. This time thinks "I really need to make the kids clean up this mess and teach them how to vacuum!!"
Story of my life.
