My house was always my last priority after a baby.

In just a few weeks the baby will start sleeping in longer stretches and then the cleaning will resume. :)

There is NO such thing as a perfectly clean house when you have a newborn (and a toddler, and all of the other kids in the house!) It's all about survival mode right now ;)
