A little while back, DT reader Dan (aka Vespadaddy) asked a question about houses being cleaner when there's a kid (or a kid on the way).
His question boils down to this: If you're an inveterate slob--and he means "cereal bowls in the living room, on the chaise, for 3
days...can't see the carpet because of the reams of newspapers" slob--is it normal to suddenly start keeping the place clean during the late stages of pregnancy?
My guess is, a baby changes everything, so whatever you were before, you're not now. Sleep much? Not anymore. Clean? you're a bum. Bum? You're a neatfreak. We've always been fairly tidy--we'd do regular Swiffering, even though we all know that's not cleaning, just it's harried substitute--but now, it feels like a major effort/accomplishment to get the place picked up by the end of the day. There's always gear, bottles, clothes, cloths, toys, &c spread out everywhere.
So who's normal around here?
