After lunch I was
while in the kitchen this was happening...
Yep! My oldest two girls, organizing cupboards to their hearts content. It's actually quite amazing that they're both doing it, usually it's just my oldest (the one with the dreaded Tupperware cupboard).
She at least organizes quietly, does it neatly and loving every minute of it. I try to give her one organizing job a week because it's totally her "thing". She'll sometimes ask if she can organize, clean or bake something for me. (Told you I'm spoiled!)
Her sister (the one with her head in the pantry) dishes out "abuse" while she rummages thru her assigned cupboard.
"Seriously Mom, we have enough paper plates. You don't have to buy any more!"
"Looks like we have wild rice so you don't have to get any." (thanks, I just picked that up at City Market yesterday since soup is on the menu for the week. I may be scatterbrained, but not that much.)
"Ugh! Isn't this box of crackers nasty by now? It's been sitting in here, like, forever!"
"Check this out! Moldy bread! Disgusting!" (shrieking loud enough for the entire neighborhood to hear)
This girl isn't into cleaning much, spewing complaints the entire time she's doing her jobs. Hand her a baby to bounce and she's as happy as a clam. Fine by me, but I still make her do her daily chores. (I'm such a mean mom!)
I've got it made in the shade. I have a cleaner and a baby lover. What more could a person want? :)
