Kids these days....

Have you ever stood on your head to make a kid happy?
I don't think I have, but I've done some pretty silly things to get a giggle!
I had Ryan watch the kids for a little while today while I ran some errands, and when I came home this is what I saw! Uncle Ryan and Kyrie barefoot on the kitchen floor, scrubbing to "it's the hard knock life" and Kyrie telling Uncle Ryan that it had to "shine like the top of the chrystler building"! (yes, she's obsessed with Annie!)
Amazing what a Kid can make you do!!! (and now I have a nice shiny clean kitchen floor!)

Love it! BUT, I can't figure out how you managed to get Ryan to scrub YOUR kitchen floor, when he never did mine!! I know, it's always more fun to do something when it's not for your mom at your own home!

Good thing you got a picture of that one for proof! I know my boys wouldn't have a clue where to start with scrubbing a floor! Actually, come to think of it, my daughter wouldn't either! Hmmmm...I think I have some work lined up!!!!

Maybe they need to see Kyrie's inspiration?
(You'll have to watch them close though, because it's very tempting to toss the bucket with the water in it when you're done!)

One of my favorite memories of Jana is her wanting to scrub my kitchen floor when she was little. She thought it was FUN! So, usually every morning before she went to Kindergarten (at noon) when she was 5 she would scrub my kitchen. And, yes with 6 little ones at home and an in-home day care, it needed it!!

And no, I didn't make her, and yes I rather felt like I was running an orphanage at that particular point!

The trick to getting Ryan to scrub the kitchen floor is to have a cute little 3 year old niece ask him to (play) annie with him. You see then he thinks its a game and therefor fun.

Haha that is great! I love Annie too, but not sure I think of scrubbing a floor as fun...next time I have to clean, maybe I'll try listening to that song! :D Your kids are so cute, and growing up so fast!
