I thought this day would never come!!

Right now Paiton knows how to wash dishes, put her folded laundry away, dust, and her newly learned skill is vacuuming!! Someday I will be able to hang up my cleaning lady hat. Just kidding...or am I. No really, I swear I am not that lazy, I just wish I could be.
How many 2-year-olds do you know that could tackle that list of chores. The funniest part of the whole thing, is how terrible she is at keeping her own room picked up. She will take every toy she owns out of the toy box, only to walk away empty handed, then whine and cry when I ask her to pick it up. Yet she will do all of my daily cleaning without so much as a whimper. I don't get it.

Cole likes to vacuum, dust and help do laundry with me. I love it too!

I love when they get old enough to help. And they think it is so fun! That is the best part!

Try letting her clean the baseboards and cupboards. Give her a spray bottle with vinegar water and a rag and it will be her new favorite job (because of the spray bottle) and your cabinets and walls will never look cleaner!!
