my {almost} 2-year-old excuse

if you regularly read this blog [you know] that
i often wonder [why] it is SO hard for me to keep a clean house.

well, wonder no more.
i now have photographic evidence to why this is.

here's what went down while i was cleaning the bathroom this morning:

i do a chore & the reward i get is the opportunity to clean up 5,345,768 sprinkles!

*i do have to give her props for putting chloe's dance clothes on.
*and i'm terribly grateful i found her before she discovered the food coloring.


it's ok.
i wouldn't trade these days for a pristine mansion or any maid in the world.
i love my baby.

It's a good thing this mischief-makers of ours are so stinkin' cute, right? Glad you're happy even though... :)

Em said...

They are called tornados for a reason :) and life would be so boring with clean house all the time. I mean what would you do with all that free time?!

The Wizzle said...

A clean house is overrated. Even though I don't really believe that...it is the conclusion I have come to as TRUTH for the next SEVERAL years! She is adorable!

LOL! You will look back at this picture and it will be one of your favorites!
Mine is of daughter 2 pouring chocolate cake mix over daughter 3, who is stuffing it in her mouth as fast as she can. So she has that chocolate rim all around her mouth and mounds of cake mix on her head and shoulders! Glad I took the picture, it brings a smile every time I look at it!
Your girls are adorable! Thanks for bringing back memories! :)

Tanya Leigh said...

My friend told me: cleaning with kids is like shoveling snow while it's snowing. :)

Time to relocate the sprinkles?? :)

Alison said...

Don't worry. My 34 year old does the same thing with sprinkles, but he doesn't look nearly as cute in a leotard. :)
