Do you clean up before you (or a maid) cleans your house. What do you do to get ready to clean?
I do laundry, declutter, put away toys, empty dishwasher and sinks, hang clothes...
By the time I am done the kids are all moaning about how they thought I said the cleaning lady was coming so why am I making them clean!!!?
But to me the cleaning lady is there to mop, scrub, etc and it's hard to do that with all their junk in the way!
