Madison begged all through breakfast to be able to mop. She started sweeping the kitchen floor while Ellie and I finished our breakfast. I didn’t want her to mop the kitchen floor because I had just done it, and I didn’t want a huge mess. But I hadn’t had time to mop the small bathroom upstairs; so, I thought, why not? I can entertain her for awhile AND get my floor clean AND not have to do the work. It was a win-win situation. I swept the floor, gave her a bucket with vinegar and water mix, and let her go. She did it in style, too; note the earrings.
Ellie, meanwhile, busied herself with her sound machine that also shines a light. Hopefully not too much damage was caused as the light penetrated her eyes.
Tonight for dessert, Madison chose a piece of chocolate over the red velvet cake; a girl after my own heart! Ellie, on the other hand, chose the cake. I gave her a small piece on her tray, and she fussed and pointed and fussed and signed please repeatedly for the whole cake. I gave in. She is spoiled. Disclaimer: I put the small piece on the plate as well, and took the cake away when it started looking like a birthday cake, frosting smearing good time.
