Owen has also discovered the Swiffer. Whenever I bring it out to sweep or mop, he follows me everywhere I go like a little puppy dog and tries to grab the handle. When I'm done, I put a fresh cloth on the bottom and let him use it. He LOVES pushing it around the house, and lucky for me, he picks up some dirt along the way. :) Unfortunately, when it's time to put it away, he gets very upset and will often cry. So I usually give it back. Who am I to deny my child from cleaning?Owen also loves the dryer. He loves to throw things inside, pull them out, shut the door, and especially...to climb inside of the dryer.
One day, he woke up super grumpy from a nap. I mean, inconsolable grumpy. Nothing would make him happy...until I put him in the washing machine.
But then he started getting upset because he was stuck, so I took him out. Then he kept crying until I put him back in. He was happy for a bit, until he tried to move again and realized he was stuck and started to fuss. Then I took him out again and he cried. We did this about three times, until I decided we were done with that "game."
But hey, at least my kid likes all things having to do with hygiene and cleanliness...well, except having his diaper changed. We'll have to work on that one.
