Cinderalla Style

So yesterday I needed to mop my floor. Saturday my mop fell apart so we went and bought a new top for it. I didn't do anything with my floor Sunday, and anyone who has been to my house knows that even if I did mop, within minutes my dogs have made it look as if I haven't cleaned in weeks. It's a very obnoxious cycle, but that's a different story. Anyway...since I hadn't done anything Sunday the floor was in desperate need of cleaning. Monday morning while the kiddo was napping I went to put the new mop head on and realized that it's the wrong one, it won't fit. Grrr!!! A sound very similar to that escaped my lips as I tried in vain to force the mop parts together. I looked at the mop, looked at my floor, and thought this will have to wait I guess. But then I thought of the poor baby sleeping so soundly who would soon be awake and wanting to crawl all over said floor (which had muddy doggie footprints all over it!), and I thought I can't let him down on this messs. He will be filthy in minutes, and I'm sure find something the dogs dragged in to put in his mouth. So I decided that for my son, I would clean the floor another way. So as I went across the floor on my hands and knees scrubbing away, I couldn't help but have the words "Cinderelly, Cinderelly all day long it's Cinderelly..." going through my head in the little mouse voice.

Lol. Now that song is going to be stuck in my head!!
I love the convenience of the mop, but when I scrub the floor on hands and knees, it's always WAY cleaner! It's NOT FAIR!! =)
Kids are meant to get dirty, especially boys. Remember that next time the mop is broken. (I know, look who's talking, huh?) =)~

haha. Kai and I just watched that movie. I have mopped the floor like that many a time or used a spray bottle with cleaner and a towel that I "skate" on. Easton has a good mommy! :)
