Multiplying

Is it just my house where the paper work and toys seem to multiply by themselves over night and the dishes and laundry during the day? I know people say you are to spend time with the kids over the house work, but my word...if I don't do dishes at least 2 or 3 times a day there are no clean bottles, pump supplies, or sink and counter space left, especially if I could even the most basic of meals. And, if you don't do laundry one day a child can get lost in the mountain of clothes that builds up. The junk and clutter that comes with the territory of several small kids in a house drives me crazy, but I remind myself that the time will come all too fast where it will be neat as can be and all too empty. My standards have become much lower with the twins that it is almost scary although between Neomi and I, we are almost constantly picking up, cleaning, and washing just to maintain. I have to be pretty darn exhausted and/or sick not to do a pick up at night after the kids are in bed so we can start the day as organized as possible. I'll take the controlled chaos even if I'm pretty sure that there must be a gremlin or body double for each kids that adds to the mess as soon as we turn our head of if you sit for 5 minutes.

Hi-
I'm a SMC to 26 month old and a 10 week old boys. Sounds like your house looks a lot like ours! At least once a day the "Circle of Life" lyrics (More to see than can ever be seen; More to do than can ever be done) run through my head! Glad to know another mom is enjoying her kids and trying to ignore the mess...
