When children clean

Filed under: Toys

"Did you clean their room?" That was the question Rachel had for me when she finished with the dishes and came upstairs to help get the kids ready for bed.

"No," I replied, "not that I know of."

"I guess Jared must have done it," she surmised. Jared and Sara had been playing in their room before I dumped the two of them in the shower, and she figured he cleaned up then. I walked into the former disaster area and went to the closet. I slid open the door and there, in a heaping pile, was a significant portion of their toys. The rest of their room, however, looked spotless.

Rachel started laughing -- apparently, she did the same thing as a child. Sometimes, it's easier when kids don't help.
