Sweeping Beauty

Ahhhhh.....some of the most worthwile dollars I spend every month, getting my house cleaned!

They are here right now, and Im so excited to have a clean house.

I mean, my house is usually "clean", but they come in and "deep clean". 

Its 2 brazilians and they are AWESOME!! They once told me "we are Brazillian, we know how to clean good"..and they are right!

My Mom and my brother both use the same people. I think my Grandma does also. 

I know some people might think "you dont work, why can't you clean your own house"? Well. I DO clean my own house. Alot. But like I said earlier, its kind of nice to have someone else come in and deep clean. 

I am a mother. Not a maid. I will spend time with my kids first, and then if I have time, housework will get done. 

I dont believe it is important to have a perfect looking house. Although, with a husband like mine, it pretty much always looks damn good! He is a huge helper around the house.

I believe it is much more important to spend time with my kiddos, having fun. I dont stress about mess. They can always be cleaned up! 

If Jalen wants to build a fort that takes up his whole room, or my room, Im going to let him. Those are the things he will remember when he grows up. 

I have fond memories of my household as a child. It wasn't the most "perfect" house on the block, but it was filled with kids, love, and laughter. 

Thats what I want for my home. 

Oh, and not to mention, my house is way to big for me to take care of by myself.

 I tried in the beginning, and I was literally cleaning for like 3-4 hours a day. Only to have no one notice what I had done. 

I finally decided, I dont want to clean house all day. So I dont.

I keep things picked up, laundry (kind of) gets done in a timely manner, and my kitchen is always clean. 

Im not going to spend my day vaccuming, dusting, and scrubbing toilets. If I wanted to do that, I would go work as a maid in a hotel.

I want to be a Mom first and foremost. Then a good wife. Then a good daughter, granddaughter, sister, get my point. There is just so much more to life than appearance. 

Thank you Sweeping Beauty, for making my house shine!!
