Are Super-Moms a myth?

I went out to lunch the other day with some friends and found out that both the other women I was with employ a woman to clean their houses every week. I thought it was a joke at first, but it wasn't. Oh the luxury. I started daydreaming there and then about someone who came to my house and mopped my floors, cleaned those stains on the carpet, washed the windows, changed the bedlinen... even now I'm getting carried away just thinking about it. Imagine the extra time on my hands if I didn't have to worry about the laundry or the vaccuming!

It made sense though, when I thought about it. No wonder these women's houses are so immaculate looking! Everything spotless and in place. I think they should have kept their cleaning lady a secret though, because now I know they aren't the Super-Moms I thought they were!


  1. hahaha! my husband let me get a housekeeper for my third trimester, and now that i am fully well capable and able-bodied i had to break up with her on wednesday. i have two more visits from her (she was coming every other week). ohhhhh how i will miss this!!! it was wonderful! (although i secretly know i do a better job and i would always be cleaning up after her. hahaa!)either way, she will be missed.

  2. :) Yep now you know how they do it! It's no secret with the majority of moms in one of my mommy groups. Most of them have maids. They have large houses that I am unsure they could keep it presentable on their own especially since many have 3 and 4 kids. YIKES!! My one friend has 5 kids. She deserves one.

    I need one too but only to come in every 2 weeks. I just can't keep up with things anymore. The husband said it was okay but then I felt guilty. Now what is that about. I need to realize I am not a SUPER MOM


HI! Thank you for leaving a comment, you've just become my new best friend :)
