So do you do this? Or have friends that do? Did you do it and how did you fix it? And please do not say it did not get better till the kids went to college. The youngest is five and I cannot wait that long for a clean house. Is it that big of a deal? I would much rather my kids remember when I am gone because we had fun and danced in the kitchen and sang at the top of our lungs than because we had a spotless house.
