Feeling....Accomplished (Sorta)It is so hard to clean your house with an extremely active four year old boy. LittleJuJu sees opportunity and fun within each and every mundane task I do:
Mundane Task: remove the slipcover from the couch to wash
Opportunity for fun: Hey! I can take these cushions off and jump on them, wow, they work as a slide too!
Mundane Task: removing all photo frames and decor from living room to dust
opportunity for fun: insert your toys and cat's toys in each and every place mommy just cleared
Mundane Task: using attachment hose on vacuum
Opportunity for fun: using attachment hose as an extra "robot arm" while sliding down the "slide" and yelling for your robot mommy to "stop cleaning and LOOK!"
Mundane Task: mopping the kitchen floor
Opportunity for fun: standing one inch from wet floor and every 2.3 seconds asking, "Is it still wet? Can I come in? I'm thirsty, is it still wet?"
Mundane Task: cleaning all glass surfaces in house (i.e windows, mirrors, television)
Opportunity for fun: now that you have a clean and fresh glass surface to work with, smudge it up as best as you can
Mundane Task: folding laundry
Opportunity for fun: trying on everything that your mommy just folded when she leaves the room
There are more, dear lord there are more. I need a sitter just to clean the house. I won't be checking in much this weekend or posting...Mr. JuJu's parents will be visiting until Monday morning. Hope you have a great weekend! Oh right, noone knows the song stuck in my head? I am disappointed, really.
