I am a stay-at-home mom and my house is a wreck. I think it just depends on the individual. I think cleaning is tedious. It will never be complete - you always have to keep doing it. So annoying! BUT - I am working on getting better. I want my kids to have better habits than I do. I know it's in their genes too. My mom is a neat freak and so are 2 of my 3 sisters! I take after my dad. Lol!
