I am not a particularly neat person but I do like things clean. I have a tendency to have numerous junk drawers and a few "working" piles of paper around the house. Well yes, I always have a stack of laundry that reaches the ceiling. Oh and my car is well, lets say "lived in".
BUT, I can not stand sticky hands, food on clothes, rolling around at the park in the dirt, taking off shoes at a dirty place- to one of our daughters this is normal. She does not like it clean and she has made that very clear.
I told her the other day as we left playgroup. (She was the dirtiest child at the park but she probably had the most fun!) I said "Honey, we are going to practice being clean cause Momma likes it clean!" Without any hesitation she told me "Well, I like it dirty!" "No honey, Momma likes it clean" giggle giggle giggle "I like it dirty" this continued for quite a while until I realized I was losing this discussion.
That night we had spaghetti. As you cam tell she thoroughly enjoyed it! And yes, I was down on my hands and knees wiping up the floor... again ...
BTW who is charge of this girls hair?
