'I want to clean the bathroom' - Anya
esterday afternoon after all the homework was done, it was clean-up time.
We usually wait until the weekend for the family clean-up time. That's when we REALLY clean the house. I just keep it tidy during the week by myself. But since my schedule is all messed up because of the freelance work, I decided to 'let' the kids help me tidy up a bit. The boys were on to my scheme.
They didn't complain about having to clean their rooms, dust and vacuum...its just that I wasn't getting them to volunteer for anything.
Thank goodness I have Anya.
"I need you guys to clean the upstairs bathroom,' I called over the sound of clanging plates and running water.
'I'll do it,' Anya called back.
With suds up to my elbows, I tracked Anya down.
'Honey, you don't have to do it yourself, I just need you all to work together to get it done.'
'Oh, no Mom. I WANT to do it. I WANT to clean the bathroom.'
'Oh, yes! Its fun!'
Of course I was more than willing to take advantage of my poor, dilusional child.
She's the only one I can trust to get it done right! :)
