TBT Loves to Clean

As annoyingly talkative as he can be, Merlin is an excellent helper around the house.  He could sort socks before he could say the word “sock” and he has been cleaning all of the bathrooms since he was three.  He likes how the special smelling chemicals make him all “dizzy and giggly”.

He was even cleaning floors before he could stand.

I would throw weetabix around and he would spend 8 hours a day sweeping.

    Such a great kid! Next step for him: shut all the windows and doors and hand that boy a paintbrush! Home makeover in no time!

      My kids love doing pest control. The goggles, suit and hard plastic backpack that holds all the chemicals looks like like a spacesuit. Or you could let Merlin watch The Hot Zone and then he can pretend he’s killing all the Ebolas.

      What do you use for cleaning products and pest control? My essential oil business has so many options for yummy, natural, effective methods that Merlin would just love! I could send you a sample or would it be more convenient for you if I reached out to Merlin instead? Your time is so precious, I could just go straight to the help and not have to bother you about the terms of a monthly oil subscription service.

    Golly, Lah Lee! You are just the BEST mother! So innovative. I wonder how it would go if I let Meghan and John switch places for the day. Trump wouldn’t even be able to tell the difference!

    You are brilliant! You just gave me the best idea. I’m going to soak the baby’s clothes in floor cleaner (not yet crawling, just rolling around) and let the Roomba go. I will be able to mop and vacuum my floors at the same time!! I really need a short-cut like this, because cleaning is cutting into *my* time, you know? You are so inspiring, thank you!!

    😉
