I remember watching an Oprah, long ago before I boycotted Oprah. They had some "scientests" on the show, running tests on people's sheets, kitchen sinks, toilets, etc, to see how many cooties they had running around. First of all, sometimes the old saying "ignorance is bliss" is true. I would rather not know how many cooties are running around in my house. Oprah then confessed that she had her sheets changed every other day. (of course SHE didn't have to change them) It just made me think...what is the normal length of time to go before changing your sheets.? Are you brave enough to admit it? I would love to say that I change mine every week...but that would be lying and I don't lie anymore. I can honestly say it's probably once a month. Is that disgusting? Seriously I'm not sure what's "normal" when it comes to sheet changing. I do change the cribs sheets often but, I'm curious to hear what other people have to say?
My other question for all of you busy moms is how do you keep up with the house and kids and still have time to "play" with them? I feel like I spend my whole day cleaning, doing laundry and making meals...and then realized that I haven't really spent any time with the kids? If I put off doing all of the housework, then it just piles up and I have double the amount to do the next day. Do any of you have any strategies, schedules, etc that work for you? Or do I need to hire a cleaning lady? :)
