Spring cleaning is daunting, plain and simple. If you are anything like me, when you are getting ready for a day, weekend or week of spring cleaning, you do a lot to prepare. For my prep, I like to gather supplies and do things like painting my nails, read War and Peace, watch a Netflix series from start to finish and order an entirely new set of everything to avoid cleaning anything. You know, normal cleaning preparations.
I can only imagine what life is like for parents out there. As a solid member of the “babysit and return” club as far as kids go, I can only get a glimpse of the sticky and messy life of kids. I can barely get the motivation to clean after myself and my cats, let alone tiny, messy versions of me.
Armed with Windex and an addiction to Twitter, instead of cleaning, I compiled a list of Tweets from parents (or those channeling the feelings of parents) to make you laugh and hopefully get you cleaning.
The Dusty Shame:
Trying to keep a three ring circus going is hard enough, you want me to clean up after the acts too?

Where do I sign up?
“Who taught them to clean? Oh, me. That makes me more concerned.”
So I can pour milk right into the cereal box right? That’s normal.
Scientists will be studying the squish for years to come, I’m sure of it.
The real life lessons must be taught!
Not all things worth learning take awhile to learn.
The grand truth of being a parent and cleaning!
Did that get your blood pumping for spring cleaning? No? Yeah me neither! My best advice for you is just do it, or have us give you a hand. Why go through the emotional hassle of cleaning when getting your home cleaned is more affordable than you thought!
