If You Clean It, They Will Come

I've told you before that when I clean a room, the kids gravitate to that new tidy area like moths to a flame. It doesn't matter if it is a bathroom or a closet, something about a blank pallet begs to be messed.

Likewise, if you make it, they will jump.

Daisy is thrilled by a clean, made bed. I didn't even have time to put the pillows back on before she had commandeered the sue-do trampoline. She figures that I cleared things off just so she could jump. And later when I cleaned off the headboard, she brought her toys in and set them up in a line.

There is no rest for the weary.

That is too funny. I feel like my husband does that too. The minute I clean off the counter, he's there putting something back on it... :)
