Your Bestie is Coming OverTouch nothing. Do nothing. This is your person, here. You’re gonna be fine.
Mommy Friends for a PlaydateDefinitely flush the toilet. Remove the duck potty of pee. Put away things that are breakable or suddenly “very special” to Lila. Brew a very full pot of coffee. Forget about the toys and the dishes and the floors, this playdate is only gonna worsen those scenarios and you don’t want to do it twice.
Neighbors for a PlaydateAsk yourselves, are their moms coming? Or will they stop by later to collect the kids? Dishes are fine, and toy messes are expected, but you should sweep the floors. Throw your unfolded laundry pile into a laundry basket or something. Wipe down the bathroom real quick in case they happen upon it.
Out of Towners You Haven’t Seen in a WhileOh boy. Time to go full tilt on the common areas. All of the above, plus clean the kitchen. Make sure their pictures are still up in your friend-collage-frame (you don’t want them to think you forgot about them). They don’t see you often, so yeah, they’re maybe gonna judge your house. You don’t want them leaving saying, “wow, they’re kind of letting things go, huh?” Cause they really might.
People Who Have Never Been to Your House BeforeOh God. Now you have to try to clean furiously, as mentioned above, but you also have to clean your shower and make your bed, because those people may ask for a tour. They may want to see what your shower looks like after the remodel. So bleach the grout while you’re in there. Scrub your baseboards. Wipe down your blinds, they may inspect them and say, “are these real wood,” and you don’t want to have to awkwardly laugh and say, “no, just real dirty, ahahahahaha.” And now you will probably try to hang those pictures you’ve been meaning to get to and fluff your pillows and stuff, because the house is the window to your soul or something. You want your house to reinforce the image you’ve been attempting to project to the world, and not scream out “Fraud! Fraud! FRAUD!” Time. To. Hustle.
Mother-In-LawJust burn the house down. It’s the only way.

Ahh. It’s the weekend. Everybody’s home, there are activities galore, and it’s time for a well-deserved respite from the day-to-day. The kids feel the difference in the air, and they start putting in requests. After all, there are no limits today- you want a popsicle? Sure. 76 hours of Peppa Pig? No problem. You want…
Laughing already? I am too. Once upon a time, Chad and I used to spend lazy summer weekends at his family cabin in the Sierra’s. We would pack up the car, drive a pleasant few hours, and plant ourselves in hammocks. I’d bring a stack of library books, eagerly anticipating lounging in the late morning…
This summer, we will all gather for birthday parties, holidays, beach days, pool parties, cookouts and campouts. And at every single one of them, a version of this will occur: A cluster of women will be standing in a circle near a cluster of men. One of the women will bemoan the fact that her…
