Little Miss Labor

So much for needing any help in this house when it comes to keeping the floors clean. If you have ever wondered how I keep them so clean...here's my secret. She is mine though so please do not try to steal her! I'll put up a good fight!

Actually, this scares me dearly. Poor thing! I so hope I have not set her up to be a Type A. I guess she has seen me on the floor scrubbing one too many times or we have watched Cinderella and Snow White too much. I hope it's more the latter. K has been washing the floors during playtime since she was very little. I'll see if I can dig up some of the older pictures to post them. Crazy kid...gotta love her idea of playing though. It certainly helps me out except for having to clean up the water everywhere. But, it is only water and That's what I continued to tell myself today after the 8th bowl of it was schlopped down on the tile.

Dec 08 3 yrs old...look at how she was playing with the grout lines. She was as she said cleaning out the cracks...oh boy!

By the way, my floors are clean but you will see in the 1st picture that my windows do not get the same love. I canNOT keep them clean. What's up with this housekeeper! Does she not like windex and paper towels or does she love seeing her handprints and lips everywhere?

And yes, it is the middle of Jan and my Cmas stuff is still up in the 1st two pics. We have not been home a week just yet so please bear with me. I pray we will have time this weekend to put them away. I Love the holiday season and all the decorations but not so fun seeing them mid Jan.

15 months old...I must have introduced her much earlier than I thought...oops! scary!

Oh my...I wish I could just borrow her for a while. My floors are always in the state of crumbs and stickiness. What does she charge? Ha! The pictures are so cute.

terrible I know but, I do wash the floor on my hands & knees with a rag vs. using a mop in the kitchen (other rooms get the mop). I can't get the floor clean enough with a mop or I haven't found the right mop. But...I am hoping to have a steam mop one day so maybe I will not be on the floor anymore. I'm crazy I know.

So funny!!! I wish she'd rub off on her friend, Lindy! She's a total slob.

Cleanliness is next to godliness, so you girls are pretty darn close!
