She ran over with a huge grin on her face and pulled a towel from the drawer indicating she wanted to help. I tried to dissuade her, but she was intent on participating in such a wonderful task. Despite their being pinesol in the water, I finally handed her a towel, and she gleefully dipped it in and washed a wall. It was but a few minutes before Mischief caught on that she was missing out on a joyful occasion. She too came and claimed a dish cloth. And so it was that I found myself booted from my activity and relegated to the sidelines.
And then Sunshine wiped her face with a soapy hand and freaked out trying to wipe the bubbles off and only making it worse. I swooped in, skating across the floor on briefly dry dishtowels to strip her to her diaper, deposit her in the sink and rinse the pinesol water off of her.
She loved it.
The kitchen at least smells clean now.
