A Clean Gingerbread House

For the last couple days, we have been planning on making a gingerbread house. You know the kind, the pre-fabricated kit with all the fixin's. Because of little things that have come up here or there, we have not gotten to making the house... yet.

So, a little bit ago, with lots of excitement and anticipation, I asked the little Ladybug, "What do you think we are going to do now?"

Her quick, excited reply was, "Make the Ginderbread House?"

Teasingly I replied, "No, first we have to vacuum, dust, scrub the floors, and..."

And before I could finish the sentence the Ladybug squealed with excitement and said, "Yes!!! I want to start by scrubbing the floors. I love cleaning!"

Uhhhhhhh, not quite the response that I was expecting... but then again, she is her nanas' grand-daughter. I always wondered why Cinderella was the Ladybug's favorite princess.

It is funny how they love to clean when they are little.... Sarah is the same way. Something tells me they will grow out of it as they get older:)

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
