Moving the kitchen table and making some more "baby proofing" fixes in our kitchen last night, clearly ment that I needed to disinfect everything. Yep. Everything, that included deep in the base board and the horrible wood panel wall. Hellooo 70's. Ugh Rental home probs. ;) I heard a chuckle as I'm on my hands and knees scrubbing the floor and using Lysol wipes on everything. (Which Btw: I LOVE Lysol wipes. Anyone else?) my husband was laughing at me. "It's like you're going through your nesting phase all over again."
- I'm not pregnant, in case you were going to ask.-
Honestly though, having a tiny new baby I let the house go. Now, I've got an almost walking 9 month old who wants to put anything and everything in his mouth.( yes, time flies as fast as they say it does.) And it took one time of him crawling around on the kitchen floor, for me to see all the dirt on his knees and just shudder in disgust.
As he gets older, I probably won't be so concerned because well, I have a Boy.. Who will prob bring me mud pies full of worms in the future. But for now, I'm going to "Toddler Nest" and do my best of keeping the house clean. Trying to find the motivation on days where I have to go to work and clean as well, It can be a little frustrating especially when you feel like you're the only one making the effort to keep things picked up. Yes,sometimes I want to just say "forget it." And sit down and be a big ol lazy bum.. But the clutter free and clean house feel is such a wonderful feeling.
Is my child the only one who rips off the corner bumpers and chews on them?

Mom friends, do you ever feel a guilt for staying home with your kiddo(s)? Were you nervous about the SAHM life change?
