Queen of Clean

I don't know where she got this, but Kailey likes to clean things. Over the past few weeks I have caught her cleaning a few times, which I think is funny, because she didn't get this love of cleaning from her mother.

Last night while she was in the tub, she proceeded to clean all around the tub with her wash cloth, then she started grabbing toys and cleaning them too. She worked on her rubber duckies for a long time. One of them she even continued to clean after all the water was gone.

A couple of weeks ago she washed her car. I keep wipes and diapers in the storage part of our coffee table, and Kailey knows where they are. She went over to the table, and started patting on it, like she wanted something out of there. I eventually figured out that she wanted a wipe, and as soon as I gave it to her, she went over and washed her car. I thought that the car washing thing was a fluke, but the bath thing last night leads me to believe that she might just like cleaning.


  1. Send her my way, I need all the help I can get. Emma is the total opposite. She likes dumping everything out. A few weeks ago she dumped an entire full box of cherrios out on Spencer's highchair tray.

  2. Go with it! This is a wonderful phase, one that mother's don't truly appreciate and use enough. Don't feel bad if you give her the duster and sit with your feet up. You work everyday to keep her clean...enjoy the return of the favor!
    Love ya!

  3. This had me laughing, I had no idea Kailey loved to clean so much. But what I did know was that she loved to steal sippy cups and shoes!!

  4. That is too funny! Ainsly is the same way. After we finish bathing her she won't get out until she has bathed herself - she even dumps cups of water over her head! Apparently Mommy and Daddy do not know how to properly clean children (she has also taken to re-washing Dawson).

  5. Mrs. Clean, Mrs. Clean! I have that Mr. Clean jingle going through my head. What a cutie pie!
