Mommy's Little Helper

This is what I found after a large commotion during naptime. He figures if he doesn't want to nap, he can at least help. Right? The vacuuming came after he had tried to sweep and mop the kitchen floor. He's one smart kid!
You know, really smart because after he wee-weed in a bowl on my kitchen floor, he got the Swiffer and tried to mop up the droplets that spilled. On my kitchen floor. And after he clogged my toilet with an entire roll of Charmin, he found the plunger and plunged. All by himself. Then just in case it was dirty, he got the brushy thingy you clean the toilet with and swished it around in the soggy, dirty potty. And put the brushy thingy back in its brushy case and cleaned the soggy, stinky floor with my new animal print hand towel. Without even telling me about it. He's super responsible.
He's a self-starter. He doesn't allow himself to get bored. He rarely sleeps. He sweeps. He mops. He vacuums. He even cleans the toilets. All alone. Unsolicited. No compensation necessary. Who needs a maid anyway? They're totally overrated!
Who needs a nap, for that matter? Some would say they're overrated. See what I would've missed?
