Long may it last

31 May

Yesterday when I announced my plan to sweep up under the dining table: “Please can I help you mummy, pleeeeease?”

“Please can I clean my chair?”

Then afterwards: “Please can we do some more cleaning mummy?”

When I relented and got out the vacuum cleaner: “Yaaaaaaaaay!”

What does it say about the state of my house if my 3-year-old responds like this to cleaning it?!

PS: Nursery’s ‘please & thank you’ training has obviously paid off. I was planning to go the unconditional parenting/lead by example route, but they got there before me and now I have the most polite and lovely child EVER.
