I love this boy...

3 days a week I do a deep cleaning of the house. I usually start during Jayden's afternoon nap and finish up when Ryan gets home and can occupy Jayden. On Monday Ryan went out 4-wheeling with some friends and was gone all day. I was still determined to get as much cleaning done as I could. Jayden was pretty good but towards the end he was following me around whining. I held him- and he was still whining (I wish he could talk already!). Finally I wondered if he wanted to clean (Seriously- WHO WOULDN'T want to clean?). I handed him a swiffer and he went to town. Toys cannot even entertain this boy for more than ten minutes... but with that swiffer he was still going after fifteen minutes. I was beaming with joy :) So I vacuumed the kitchen floor while he swiffed. We make a great time. Eventually he got tired of the swiffer- which was good cause I needed it to mop. He got to his "whiny" stage again. This time I gave him a wet wash cloth. FORTY FIVE minutes he wiped cupboards, the floor, chairs... It was the cutest thing ever. That's my boy!! I hope it lasts! Here's a video I took 15 minutes after I had finished cleaning:
I hope this will last... forever! :)

Holy cow that is so cute! Ha Ha, he looks like he has a lot of energy to burn. I should try that with my kids.

I love it! Miles mopped our kitchen floor for about 20 minutes a couple weeks ago. He loves helping around the house. I'll have to try giving him a wet washcloth. I haven't done that yet. Hope all is well!
