The place is permanently messy but we usually do the laundry and dishes and make sure nothing is actively rotting. I think I just make peace with it in my head when I’m feeling zen and otherwise feel kind of annoyed.
Sometimes when I’m feeling annoyed about the kid or about the mess I imagine that it’s close to the end of my life and I have one more chance to go back in time and see this period of our family’s life. I try to imagine what it would be like to savor the utter banality of it from a position of it being scarce. Then I feel less annoyed and more grateful.
