When I was hugely pregnant with our second baby and trying to keep up with a one-year-old, we hired a cleaning service for one thorough cleaning before baby arrived. It was magical. Shortly after that, my husband gave me a year’s worth of cleaning (by a housekeeper—not himself) for my 30th birthday. (Happiness!) She ended up staying with us for the next seven years. :) In fact, I only stopped using her after the twins hit full-running-toddler-mode, and it became a huge task in itself to pick up all of our stuff and get them out of the house for a few hours.
But now that the kids are getting bigger (and possibly even messier), I’m starting to itch for a magical cleaning fairy again. I keep telling myself I’ll have time to clean bathrooms while the twins are at preschool, but am finding that every “free” minute goes to working on the blog. We can’t do it all—right? (Yet, I still think that I can.)
I’d rather have a sparkling clean kitchen than a fresh manicure, any day. (Justify, justify, justify!) Why will we spend money on other things but have such a hard time paying for a regular house cleaning?
Do you have regular housekeeper? (And, do you have a hard time justifying it?)
