As a mommy-to-be you always hear about how much laundry you’re going to have and how many diapers you’re going to have to change once your little one arrives.
While I do have more laundry it’s only about an extra load or two a week. I do change a lot of diapers (and some days a lot of outfits), but I really don’t mind those things.
What I really feel like I spend my time doing is cutting up food, washing the high chair tray…and seat…and the floor around it…and my kid. It’s constant. CJ eats about 4 times (check out what he ate one day last week) a day and usually gets food all over the place.
In comes the outfit change (sometimes), but like I said that’s not what gets to me. I do the best I can to clean up the area, but I never quite get everything off the floor. Lately, I am always stepping on something in the kitchen reminding myself to vacuum. Then when vacuuming doesn’t quite take care of the blueberry, banana and avocado reminince on my floor I tell myself I’ll mop tomorrow.
Even having to vacuum and mop way more might not be so bad, but Connor HATES the vacuum. Like really hates it. Pulls a full on temper tantrum starting when he sees it. He doesn’t like the Shark steam cleaner either. For some reason even though it’s not that loud it makes him cry.
I can’t really figure out where all of this came from since he doesn’t mind the hair dryer or the blender, but maybe it’s because he heard the other two often when he was first born and never really heard or saw the vacuum? I didn’t need to vaccuum that much when he was little since he didn’t make a mess and it was just hubby and I. Now…I need to vacuum way more and can’t make it happen…at least not without making my kid cry.
Besides cleaning my son’s high chair, my other least favorite mommy chores include changing the crib sheet and changing the diaper pail.
I don’t want you to think I’m complaining because these are all silly things and I love my son so much that I’d clean his high chair 10 times a day if I had to. I mean look at this kid.
