Spring Cleaning :)

Step 1: Sweep throughly

Step 2: Mop with the sudsiest soap you can find

Step 3: Run the vac, using your best form and technique

Step 4: Clean the glass

Step 5: Pack it up after a hard day's work
I promise you, I don't MAKE Charlie clean, he really likes it I swear. Since his favorite "toy" was the vacuum cleaner attachments, my friend Michele got him his very own vac for his birthday! And I got him the cleaning when I clean, he can clean with me. (Note to self: DO NOT use dish soap in the mop bucket. I didn't want him cleaning with chemicals, so I used some Mrs. Meyers dish soap....needless to say, this required more clean up after the time: WATER) I guess I was going for authentic over practical. But anyway, the clean house lasted about, uhhh....45 minutes. Now I am back to tripping over toys, scraping who knows what off the glass, and looking at the carpet in disgust. Well, it was good while it lasted!


  1. Too cute . . . I have to get some of those janitors' carts for my kids:)

  2. Isn't that the funniest thing?? Aidan totally loved to clean too when he got home. . .still wants to "help" with the vaccuuming. . .and I let him help never going back over what he has done! : ) I figure this will go away with time.

  3. OH my gosh! Landon cleans non-stop too! Even after almost a whole hour of vacuuming the whole house he will have a meltdown when we have to put it away! I really think they taught those kids how to clean over there! :)
