Boyfriend material.




My reverse psychology backfired. When I said he could scrub the toilets if he was really bored, I didn't think he'd take me up on it. I didn't think he'd not only clean and scrub and shine the bathroom with enthusiasm, but also love the entire process. And when he was all finished with his bathroom that he shares with Colton? Yeah, he asked to do another one!

His

eyes

LIT

up

when I said

there were

TWO SINKS

in

our bathroom.



I am really hoping he is bored again tomorrow. I so need to dust!

  1. Oh,Vicky...I'm loving this young man!! How cute this post is (love your ending about dusting tomorrow.)
    What age are they when they outgrow 'doing toilets'...?
    I also love the colorful gloves!
    Give him a big hug from me...and tell him he is a dear...and I am quite sure that he endears himself to every mother and grandmother reading this blog!!!

  3. OOooopsie....That 'comment deleted' post is (was) mine, Vicky. I sent the first one...and it just SAT there. I didn't think I sent it...soooo, you guessed it... I sent it again. Naturally, it posted twice! I didn't figure you'd want to see it AGAIN...so I deleted it. Just wanted to explain the "Comment Deleted"....I'm so impatient with this dial up....You think I'd learn by now....but.... :))
    I'm only going to hit "Publish Your Comment" once on this one...even if I have to wait...and wait. :)))))) I don't want to repeat...repeat myself!!
    Smiles,

  7. Anytime....I have 4 bathrooms....(laughing)...

    Seriously, you have to get that child a hobby....(laughing)....then again...on second thought....you can now get a hobby.

    Do you think he could train a 2 1/2 year old....toilet training is on our agenda this summer! We could add toilet cleaning to the list!

    I bet Colton just rolled his eyes and was all "just let him..."
