Childhood obsessions

Kirsten has developed two new obsessions in the past week. The first is that she packs up all of her Little People in to every bag that she can find. Then she carries them all over the house and finally ends up in her closet, which she has now decided is a school bus. We have to then sit in her closet and she sits by the door and drives to school. Then we have to go sit on her toy box, which is her school, and she reads me a book. And yes, we do this about 25 times a day. Her second obsession is cleaning. She insists that I let her vacumn every day and gets mad if anything is out of place or if she sees dust. The plus side is that she has decided to start cleaning herself. I caught her yesterday on the back of the piano dusting, and singing "Sing Sweet Nighting gale". For those of you without little girls, that is the song that Cinderella sings as she is on her hands and knees cleaning the floor. We have got to stop watching so many princess movies around here.
Side note, it is not your imagination, I cut about 8 inches off of Kirsten's hair last week. Sadly, it cut off all of her ringlet curls. On the plus side, combing her hair every morning does not constitute the beginning of World War 3.

She is the cutest thing ever. What is she going to do when she gets to college and realizes she can't pick "princess" as her profession? You are lucky to have a 3 year old who loves to clean!! I don't think that's common, but I would take advantage while you can!

I think you should start your own cleaning business. Start making money off of that little girl!

you have a little helper! so now the two of you go nuts if there is dust in the house. not a bad thing, considering that she has to have a dust free environment or her asthma kicks in. what a cute girl! We miss Kirsten!
