There seems to be this myth that stay-at-home-moms are supposed to spend their days cleaning, keeping their homes spotless. Well, that isn’t what this SAHM does at all. I often say that I am a stay-at-home-MOM, not a maid. Not only do my children drag out toys and make messes, I happily encourage their play. That said, when our home is in disarray, it takes a toll on my mind and my attitude. Justin will attest to this fact. The state of our home has a huge bearing on how I feel mentally.
So, while I know that our home will never be spotless, there are certain spaces that I have to keep clean. Our kitchen is the most used room in the house. It really is the center of our home, the heart of our home, if you will. It is not only a kitchen, it is my office and our school room. Cooking, blogging, teaching, paying bills, crafts, projects- it all happens in the kitchen. Even with a whirlwind of activity, the kitchen has to be clean. If my counters are wiped down and the floor is swept and mopped, I can breathe a sigh of relief. Bryson and Bella’s rooms can look like a tornado came through, but I need a clean kitchen. After I broke my leg and ankle last year, Justin took care of most of the household duties. He did a great job and I’m so thankful for him. I still found myself looking at the kitchen floor and all of the sticky spots that he didn’t have time to clean and before long, I found myself mopping from my wheelchair. I am that crazy about a clean kitchen. What I love most about is clean home is how it makes me feel.
