I hope all of you American friends had a nice Thanksgiving! We did. And of course, after the feast, there was a huge clean up. I enlisted the help of my kids.
"Bubba," I said. "Please wash the cutting board."
"Okay, Mama," he said, and grabbed a sponge and dish washing soap.
A few minutes later, I checked on him. It didn't look like he was making much progress. "How's it going, Bubba?"
He grinned. "Great!"
I stood next to him to inspect his work. "Bubba, are you drawing on the cutting board with the soap?"
He shook his head. "No, Mama. I'm practicing my cursive." He pointed out his name written across the wooden board. "Do you like it?"
"Sure. Now you can practice seeing how fast you can erase it with the sponge!"
He did it super-fast. "This cleaning game is fun!" he said.
"Good," I said. "Because you can do it about ten more times with all the other pots and pans!"
