I was sweeping the kitchen floor when a totally revolutionary idea came to me. I called out to Nathan, who was playing the Wii, Hey — wanna mop in here after I finish sweeping?
He said he would, and then the girls d e m a n d e d chores to do, too. Fair’s fair. I gave them a spray bottle of Mrs.Meyers and a couple of rags and had them clean the cabinet doors, walls, and trash can in their bathroom. Then, they cleaned the kitchen table (it was already clean, but I wasn’t about to tell them no) and they mopped a little more, which resulted in a really puddly, but clean! kitchen floor.
Um. This is what normal people do, isn’t it? I totally want to spy on other families and see how they do things. I think I’d be amazed.
