She is cleaning, to her standards and does not see things she has left behind on counters, floor, etc. I will make her come back and clean up if it is major (not just a spot here and there).

That is picking and choosing, lol. Eating "part" of dinner, but not all of it, then fixing a sandwhich (something else).

If the food is already made and everyone else is eating it, why can you not pick those items also? My point is that I will not make a separate entire meal for anyone.

Ok. We don't have different standards in our home. Clean is clean. In your bedroom, you (mostly) get to determine what that means. In the kitchen, mom does. I am willing to make a list, so that they know what the expectations are. But if they don't clean up afterthemselves (to a SET standard) then they lose the priviledge of doing what they want (in this case, baking).

I don't think anyone in my house would ever get up to my cleaning standards lol (maybe hubby is close some times). I also seem to see more things than anyone else in my house.

>My dad is 67!

Wow G-gal I know you are much younger than me too.  My dad was only 21 when I was born.

That would be a problem for me. Either your standards are unrealistic, or the people living in your house aren't very respectful.

Picking and choosing AND making something different is not an option in my home.
