V-girl's Day Of Rest

I really try hard to made Sunday a day of rest.  Sometimes, though it isn't worth it on Monday morning, if you know what I mean.

But, yesterday, when I looked around at my messy house and especially the kitchen, I just didn't have the oomph to knock out the kitchen before I went to bed.

At one point in the night, I sent V-girl into the kitchen to wash her hands.  She did and while she was there asked if she could do the dishes.

I said, no thanks, Mommy will just do them tomorrow.  She asked again.  I said not this time.  (I think most of you know that having a 3 year help with certain chores....sometimes makes for more chores for you later, you know?)

Anyway, I went back to making my list of things to get done on Monday morning, with the kitchen right at the top.

But, V-girl didn't come back.

Then I heard the water running.

She just went about her business as if I hadn't said no.  Of course, the kitchen was so messy, she had no counter space to put the "clean" dishes.  She washed each piece individually and then just marched right up and down those little steps everytime she had another one clean.....and placed it carefully on the floor.  She then proceeded to warn any and all that she had clean dishes on the floor and not to step on them.

I guess there are times when it is sort of okay for your kids to disobey you, hmmmm?
