Mommy Rule #4
Forget the housework and get some sleep

This is mostly true in the beginning.  Those first few months are hard … eh, that’s an understatement.

I’m not telling you to tell your husband that “Ivy said I don’t have to do housework because I have a baby” … I’m not backing you up on that what-so-ever.

What I am telling you is that in those first few months when you’re not well rested and the thought of doing housework makes you want to crawl into a hole and die and then you think “but if anyone sees this disaster of a house …”  you probably should take a nap if the baby is sleeping.  The disaster will be there in an hour when you’re feeling a smidge more rested.
