Some days, mommies just have to be creative--especially if they want to get something done around the house. Today my goal was to clean up the laundry room. Evan definitely had other ideas. While I'm in the laundry room, he was unpacking the folded clothes, on the counter in the kitchen helping himself to whatever he could find, reprogramming the televison. You know--those things that toddlers do to help keep mommies busy.
I had just finished cleaning the laundry tub when I had a thought. Evan needs a bath and I know he'll fit in here. I gave him a couple clean containers and enough water to wash himself and half of the laundry room floor. :) He's clean. The laundry room is clean.
Just another day in the life of Creative Parenting 101.
