Today was one of those days where I was on a work call one minute, and the next thing I know I was being called into the lounge to help my eldest teen move furniture around. I had no intention of pulling the TV cabinet out and cleaning behind it today… I mean, who does that in the middle of a working day?
There was no stopping her; she was in a cleaning mood. As I had a work call to make, she got her sister (my youngest teen) to help. There was a lot of unplugging going on, as well as dusting, wiping down skirting boards and surfaces, moving shelves in the cabinet, and removing the AV unit and speakers (which haven’t worked for a while).
It was a bit embarrassing when she asked me when the unit had last been pulled out and cleaned behind (ahem… I have absolutely no idea). When she put everything back, there was a lot more space and no clutter or dirt. Perfect!
Unfortunately I had to carry on working this afternoon and my husband wanted to switch Sky TV back on and spend time in the lounge, so we never got to go back and finish cleaning the room. What my girls did today though was fantastic and, just like yesterday, I was feeling very grateful to my new little helpers.
It’s bank holiday weekend now and my daughter has asked me if she can help clean the bathrooms tomorrow. She’s definitely keeping me on my toes at the moment. I’m going with the flow with this one.
Go with it!
