Real homes with kids in them
Where can I find images of those? Im a fan and I :drif: while checking it out, but those images are so set up/dont like like kids live there...with expensive ceramic lamps on glass coffee tables, white sofa covers, streak-free window panes, toothpaste splatter free mirrors, pristine white sinks and toilets...dont even get me started on the kitchens!

Are they billion dollar homes set up for sale or do people live there?

I want to look at homes of real moms with kids underfoot. Is there any such site (apart from a couple of threads -or rather daring mamas- posting about remodeling/minimizing on here) homes with stuff lying around, walls written on...

Sites with ideas about how to secure your stuff yet keep kids safe.For Eg: I have this huge hutch which is sitting bare without its shelves -we moved a couple of mos ago -because DS1 climbs on it all the time to keep his crayons/pens, etc fm ds2's hands. It abutts the dining table, so a chair to climb on is already there! I have plans of getting glass doors on them and locking the hutch, but that's still years away....not in the budget/time for it.

Im venting. Please mamas, tell me your floors also weep with you on some days! That your wedding band is envious of the ring in the loo!

Re: Real homes with kids in them
Well, it's my daughter's first birthday party on Saturday and I have morning sickness. I cleaned part of the house today but the dogs have already messed it up. I know that my husband is going to shave and get hair all over my nice clean bathroom, and walk in the house with his boots on and I could have brushed my dog for an hour and he'd still be shedding. I feel like putting a sign up, "I cleaned before you came, seriously". Have you tried looking on Pinterest? There's lots of practical things on there.

Pinterest is good.

Just FTR...I have glass side table and coffee table, ceramic lamps in my bedroom and a feaux crystal one in my living room on glass table. My windows need cleaned because DS and the dogs outside but its 40 degrees out and I dont want to. Oh, and those glass.tables I have, I clean multiple times a day. LOL

Yes, those ARE boxes piled in the corner, and yes, half of them ARE waiting to go to the dumpster. The other half have been waiting for 4 months to go to storage :D
