I'm not good at cleaning which is why we have house cleaners come in twice a month.

Being 5 months pregnant, most days I just count the hours until I can lie down and take a nap or go to bed

Seriously though, I don't really clean, but it feels like I do laundry all the time, also picking up toys all the time (although it does NO good because they are right back there again!). I make meals, clean up from meals, change diapers, check email, check JM, go to the park, go on playdates about 1 or 2 times a week, pick up and drop off my daughter from preschool, lock my self in the bathroom so I can take a shower or go pee in peace. Play with the kids, or rather, keep the kids from killing each other. Pay the bills, do the grocery shopping, things like that.

I don't watch TV for myself, but my kids watch some. I don't like TV, I'd rather read. I also try to knit or sew or quilt, but often find that pointless because as soon as I sit down the kids need something.

My days can be long and boring, but I love my kids to death and wouldn't change a think (except maybe get out with other moms more)

I try to make sure I do a little bit of cleaning everyday. I made myself a list of each day what I am suppose to clean. That helps keep my house stay super clean and it doesn't take a lot of time to do it each day. I normally clean while my son is napping.

I also play with my son a lot, go to playdates, spend way to much time online, cook, and be a mommy. I do watch a little bit of TV but not a lot mainly scrapbooking shows.

Well what a ? I was only married for 1 1/2 months before getting pregnant... and as most of you would guess I was very tired for most of my pregnancy... I chose naps over house work but now that I have had the baby I promised my husband that I would keep the house up ( he really doesn't care about it as long as I am happy) but I figured that there was no excuse since I was home all day any way. I do keep the house up and the dishes and the laundry. Bennie( my son ) is really easy so that makes it nice for me. and I have from 8-5 to get it all done.... Hubby helps out a lot too which makes it even better.

I do a little of both.. I clean for a bit ( 30 or more minutes) then watch some tv and get on the computer or cross stitch.... Then I clean for 30 more minutes and then take a break...... I don't clean on the weekends so Monday I am cleaning most of the day...

well I have to admitt I love the lifetime channel but I only watch it at night when the kids are in bed MOST OF THE TIME. sometimes I'll watch it during the day. I am six months pregnant and am having a hard time finding the energy to do anything. I have been really trying to keep the house clean for my husband. Because I know he really likes that.

I try to walk everyday after breakfast. My dd loves her stroller rides so it works out well. We run errand as needed and try to clean the house, Lindsay "helps". I cook and when dd is napping I do my bible study and try to crochet (teaching myself and struggling, but it's a fun hobby anyways. My grandma is coming in a few weeks and I'm hoping she can get me on a better track).-Jamie

I will admit it. I sit on my butt alot. My son sleeps alot. The girls ar etoo old for mommy to play with them, or so they say. I would clean more but we are still remodeling and it is hard to do that right now. So hopefully when the house is done I will get it clean and it will stay that way. The girls are going to school and Gabriel doesn't do anything to make a mess. I am going to be even more bored than I am right now.
