Coping with A.M.H.

Hi friends, welcome back. Today we’re going to talk about A.M.H. syndrome. This typically occurs to mothers whose days just don’t have enough hours.

Oh wait, you’re probably wondering what A.M.H. syndrome is.

Always Messy House.

I know, surely, I am not alone in this uphill battle to keep my house from looking like a hurricane just came ripping through.

I’m here to tell you, it’s OKAY.

As a full time working mom of two, my days fly by. I often feel guilt, you heard me, GUILT when I don’t have time to clean.

I’m laughing to myself right now when I think about the fact that I have, on multiple occasions, stressed myself out to the point of tears because my house almost never looks “perfect”.

I think it’s society’s fault. We are bombarded by the idea that we have to keep our houses clean, and organized, and PERFECT at all times.

I’m here to tell you it’s not realistic to believe these things. Life happens. If you didn’t get a chance today to wash your dishes, don’t sweat it, neither did I.

I’m teaching myself to enjoy the moments with my kids while they are happening, and worry about the mess later.

(I’m not promoting living in squander, I’m simply saying don’t make yourself sick over messes that can wait until your kids are in bed.) 🙂

So, mommas, I hope this helps you take a deep breath and know that you aren’t alone. I am right there with you, stepping through my house like I’m walking through a field full of land mines.
