Susan here, checking in for tackle duty…
The most frustrating part of tackling housework when you’re a mom is the sense of futility as you know how quickly your hard work will be undone.
We live in a rather small townhouse where our living room area and would-be-dining room area forms one TV/Living/Playroom area which extends directly off of the kitchen/entrance-way. So it’s one narrow, long room which essentially is where my girls and I eat, work and play. And it’s constantly a cluttered mess.
The other day, I did a giant tackle, felt huge relief and took photos to document my success. But the sad truth is that now after Julia’s 6th birthday party, there are piles of new toys that haven’t yet found homes and the place again looks a mess.
But let’s pretend that it still looks just like it did after my recent tackle…
