I find myself cleaning a lot nowadays. If it’s not the kitchen, it’s the dishes or the floor or high chairs, tables, little faces, noses and fingers.
It’s only natural but my daughter is manic about cleanliness too. She obviously sees me cleaning all the time. At other people’s houses, she cleans the table when she is done, shrilly demanding: “Tishooe Tishooe”. Everyone think its very sweet and she, ever eager to please, starts cleaning more and more objects and people around her.
My problem with this is that if a woman is finicky about cleanliness, she will end up cleaning for all those around her. If a man is finicky, he will just clean his stuff and get accolades for just keeping it together. So since my second is a son, I have a choice either to tell my daughter to take it easy when it comes to cleanliness or tell my son to be cleaner than clean.
I’m not making sense. I need to sleep.
