Cinderella???

Yesterday Charlie decided she wanted to clean the kitchen floor, so after sweeping it she soaked a dishcloth in water, poured lots of dishwashing liquid on it to build up a healthy layer of foam, and got down on her hands and knees and began 'scrubbing'. She did a pretty good job on the areas she washed, but the 'ugly stepgrandmother' had to get the mop out and rinse all that soap off when Cinder-Charlie was finished. Good experience for Charlie though - she loves to help out around the house.


And then later in the day she had to provide the horsepower so the 'spoiled stepsister' could go to the fall ball!

Can Charlie come visit? My floors are looking a bit dingy

i hope her enthusiasm for cleaning carries over to when she's actually old enough to be useful

Woah ~ she's willing to clean floors on her hands and knees? How much does she charge?

Pictures are adorable and perfect for the Cinderella story!

I love those little plastic Beep-Beep cars. Charlie is getting into the scrubbing and Elly looks just like she thinks she is actually driving.
