Girls Write Out
Sunday, January 31, 2010

My youngest son likes to clean. When he was 5 and asking to mop, my friends would smirk and say, "Yeah, don't get used to that. He'll grow out of it."

But here is at 11 and still asking to clean. He has, however, learned he can turn a profit for his services. Sometimes, if we don't need the cleaning enough to pay him, he'll sigh and say, "Okaaay. . .I'll do it for free."

We shrug. "Suit yourself."

The other day he spent 3 hours cleaning out my vehicle. Vacuumed and spot-cleaned the carpets, cleaned the windows, the dash and console. He even polished the leather seats--which would explain why, when I entered the driver's side the next morning, I went sliding out the passenger door.

But hey. Not complaining.

And no, he's not available for adoption.

* Don't forget to pray for Diann today!*

Wow!! What a gift! Can he come over to my house to "play"? LOL

My husband does all the cleaning (and cooking and laundry) since I am totally disabled and have my hands full just taking care of myself. Because I refuse to nag, the floors are dirty, the trash sometimes overflows, the bathrooms are starting to grow, and we have no clean plates for tomorrow's dinner! But his heart is in the right place and I love him for his willingness to care for me.

Teach that to your son and women will be falling all over him when he gets older. Hmmmm...that may not be such a good idea, now that I think about it. Oh well, you know what I mean. *smile*

I LOVE this story! I can't believe Trevor is growing up so much. He was just a little guy when we first became friends.

He's a great kid! You've done a good job, mommy. :-)

He's very cute. Can he come over and teach my two teens a thing or two? ;)

Thanks, C!

I think it's inborn, Suzanne. But it can't be hereditary. LOL
