Sometimes I sit around and try to think up happy ways to deal with the common, repetitive act of cleaning house, especially the kitchen. The perfect fix, would be to trick someone else into doing the tasks while I drink iced tea and play Frontierville, Farmville or some other imaginary crop growing game.
Today I thought this would be funny.
Of course, I am pretty sure my little guy will not go for it, he is much too smart to have a Tom Sawyer and the Fence trick pulled on him.
Though I could bribe him with popsicles and Lego Ninjago sets…. but then he would expect those all the time. Besides this material-bribe reasoning he is still not yet tall enough to reach to top of the kitchen cabinets or deep inside the washing machine to retrieve wet clothes.
So I guess I will just stick to his usual make bed, take out trash, and pick up play areas and bedroom. Bummer
