My 18-month-old daughter follows me around the house and points out imperfections in my cleaning strategy.
“Mess! Dirty!” she says whenever she sees something that isn’t up to her high standards. “Ewww! Wash! Wash water!” She keeps repeating it until I do wash the offending bit of floor or furniture with water.
Yes, I taught her the words, complete with a disgusted facial expression that accompanies “ewww”. It seemed like a fun thing to do at the time. Little did I know she was going to put this fun skill to use so fast.
