Joshua: I want to do something super special with daddy
Liz: What's that?
Joshua: I want to vacuum! I want to help daddy clean!
And, he was very helpful. He helped me clean up all of the toys and clutter off of the floors, he used "Dusty" (his toy vacuum cleaner) for a while during the time I was using the vacuum cleaner. Then he decided that he wanted to use the real vacuum cleaner and did a good job of actually vacuuming up the carpet. Now we just need to find out how to keep up his enthusiasm for chores :)
