The Not Perfect Housewife

Don't waste your life cleaning. Do it fast and smooth.

I tried to be the perfect housewife… and I failed

Bethany ThomsonAre you trying to be a successful working girl, a carrying mother and wife and a perfect housewife at the same time? I tried… and I failed.

I realised you can’t make the best of everything. But you can make the best of what you’ve got. I started to manage my time more carefully. Now I prefer spending 2 hours with my kid (1,5 year old) and my husband instead of making a “Martha Steward” cake. To take a little care of the house every day, instead of spending the whole Saturday coping with the mess.

I’ve learned a lot of tricks that help me deal with the household in the fastest way so I have time for the things that are really important. And I’m gonna share them with you. Are you ready to take notes?

    I try to be the perfect husband, but I too tend to come up short.

    I actually work in home decorating (the source of many disputes), and would love to pass along my some of my insights to your readers.

    Would you be interested in receiving a guest article submission? I recently just redid all our blinds and curtains and would love to talk about that, or some of the other projects I’ve been working on. Let me know!
