Week before last we had an out of town guest. Roughly five days before his arrival, I told my nine year old daughter I would need her help getting the house ready. I made plans to wash the windows, scrub floors, and do a lot of general spring cleaning. Plus, she would be bunking with her brother while our guest slept in her bed, so I wanted her to straighten up her bedroom.
By the end of the five days, I had done all of the cleaning…even her room. I gave up and told her the only thing left to do was to put a few things away. By the time our guest arrived, she hadn’t helped with that either.
So, I had to shake my head in disbelief when last week she asked if she could go to school early every, single day to, “help her teacher clean”.
I want to know what they are putting in that classroom dust.
