dust bunny


'Mommy, I'm your little dust buddy, aren't  I?'
I paused to think about it. Deciphering what she might mean.


'Dust bunny?' I ask.
She nodded her head, up and down.
'Oh, yes.  I help you clean and wash the dishes. That makes me your little dust bunny'.

A quiet afternoon during a snowstorm,  looking for something, anything, to do. I suddenly remembered an extra set of dolly dishes I had stored away for 'some day'. Out they came, and they needed a washin'.  Guess who spent the next two hours wrist deep in bubbles?


She can be my little dust bunny anytime.

Sweet Rosie...a favorite thing to do is cleaning with lovely soap. Mrs. Meyer is a favorite. Perfect scarf and apron. You did great.

Smiles...Renee

Sweeeeet- litte dust bunny!

My last little one played with shaving cream and water every day.

Thoughts for the day said...

They love to play in water and why not? it takes the boredom away and it is rather relaxing even for us as adults to wash the warm dishes. Sweet blog post.

Ellen said...

How precious! My little niece is just the same in a sink full of bubbles and water - she can spend hours on end playing.

I like your dust bunny best! Mine don't look that cute and they don't do dishes:>{ They just lay under the furniture ;>}
