Yesterday I was doing dishes in the kitchen and Ellie ran up to me. "I want the doo-doo! I want the doo-doo!" she yelled. (The "doo-doo" is what she calls the ipad her grandpa gave her; the name comes from the sound one of the apps makes.) I was busy washing dishes though and didn't want to get it for her, and also I'm trying to lessen her media consumption, so I told her, "Not right now, Ellie. Go play with something else."
So she ran away and started singing, "Cleaning! Cleaning!" (the whole song goes "Cleaning! Cleaning! Everybody, everywhere. Cleaning! Cleaning! Everybody do your share.") and was singing and doing something on the other side of the counter for like ten minutes.
Then she ran back around and yelled at me, "I cleaned it!" "Really?" I said with enthusiasm, even though I had no idea what she cleaned. "Show me!" She ran back around the counter and I followed her, and I found this:
Her toy shelves, completely clean and everything put away! It looks like Jason or I cleaned it!
I was so surprised and impressed. And I definitely gave her the doo-doo to play with after that, because I thought she deserved it. :)
