It's starting to look like our little Rowan might have a future as a cleaning lady. She LOVES to help mommy clean and is (as usual) determined to do things herself. We hear this a lot at our house..."NO, I DO IT" or "I DO IT, I DO IT, I DO IT". I'm serious, if you give this child a task, she's a happy camper! She loves to wipe down anything she can reach with wipes...from baby doll butts (she can wipe a teddy bear's butt over and over for hours, to kitchen cabinets, to the sofa?, and even her baby brother's crib. She also loves to sweep the floors, take a new trash bag and place it in the trash can (whether it's empty or not), and is even doing dishes now. She'll stand at the sink and just rinse and wash on her own, sometimes making a mess with water but other times is actually being helpful.
I'm always amazed by what a 2 year old is capable of! I can't imagine what this little monkey will be up next year when she's turning 3. With my luck she'll probably be more into making messes than cleaning them up at that point! I had Derek take a video of her helping mommy rinse dishes last night...it was SO cute so check this out. She has a little bit of a messy face from dinner, but I think that makes it all the more enjoyable!
