    who does this every evening am I NUTS?

    Pick up ds's toys?? Oh my goodness everynight I spend 20 mins picking them up and putting them away. I am nuts it takes him 5 minutes in the morning and he has them everywhere again. Its not like I get to enjoy a neat and tidy house because I do it and go to bed.... Maybe it just gives me a clear conscience? Kind of like making the bed in the evening... I used to do that when I worked

    I do. Every night we put all the toys in the toybox and run the swiffer over the carpet to pick up the cat hair. I can't stand it messy overnight. My house is not as clean as it was before kids but I do give it a try.

    For me it depends what mood I'm in or how tired I am!! Sometimes I might just push everything into one corner.

    However, one thing I go to do which is even more stupid -

    on my days off / weekends, I always go to set the alarm for the next morning.

    HELLO - my baby rarely wakes any later than 6am !!

    For the most part they stay out. . . I try but I once heard "housekeeping with kids is like shovelling snow in a snowstorm". I so agree with that!

    Yeah, I'm lazy too!

    I do too so don't feel bad. Rule of thumb if your house is uncluttered it will look a lot cleaner than it really is and because I have zero time especially lately to clean at first glance it looks clean - lol.
