I took this pic when she added about the 30th kitchen towel:
I simply told her that 30 was plenty, and really it was a small spill of soup, so this should be fine. Good Job.
No. She shook her little 3 year old finger at me, climbed on top of her new kitchen towel sopping up soup tower and told me, "Your attitude is unacceptable, Mama. Please don't talk back to me like that ever again. "
She's climbed down now, has run out of kitchen towels, and started in on the wash cloths.
I appreciate your dedication to cleanliness, really I do. Now just stop. Please.
