Elizabeth spilled her glass of juice today. So, I threw her a towel so she could clean it up. She began only halfheartedly, distracted by something her brother was doing. Then all of a sudden her eyes lit up, she got down on her hands and knees and started really scrubbing.
"Mommy!" she called. "I'm doing it just like Cinderella!"
Hmmmm . . . Do you think her mother could use this new motivation to get her to pick up her toys as well? We might be on to something here.
