Paige and Allie approached me several times today and said, "I'm bored. What's there to do?" These are statements that drive me crazy. I offered a few suggestions and the girls did go outside to play for an hour, but eventually returned inside due to the cold.
Once again I was told that they were bored. In frustration I threatened, "If you tell me you're bored again, you girls are going to scrub the floors." Two voices immediately chimed in, "Can we, please? "What floors can we do? Can we do them ALL?"
The youngest girls are happily scrubbing down the main bathroom floor with extreme joy and vigor. They are still saying that they want to do ALL the floors, but I'm not quite so optimistic. At least the bathroom will be cleaner and I have some peace and quiet.
