Why I do it, Wednesday

Everyone needs some kind of blog "catch." So, every Wednesday, I'll tell you something that I do and even if it is something that sounds crazy, and I'll give the reason for doing it. I'm big about this in my classroom. If my students don't know the WHY then they don't usually want to do what I ask. So, on this Why I do it, Wednesday, I'm going to tell you why I follow this kid around picking up everything she drops!

See that playroom behind her? It's attached to our living room. Which you can see here:I absolutely CAN NOT stand to watch TV in a dirty room! I constantly pick up in there! Zach always asks why I constantly clean up the room. Why not just wait until bed time? I CAN'T! I cannot enjoy myself in a dirty room! See that vase of flowers on the coffee table? Bailey LOVES to pull all of them out and dump ALL of the glass beads onto the floor. I probably pick them up 3 times a day! But, I continue to do it because part of me has this fear that the house will become overwhelmingly nasty if I don't constantly keep it picked up! Also, even though I know this is silly, I feel like I'm getting a little extra exercise following her around and picking up her messes, lol. So, there you have it, why I do it, Wednesday.
I'll try to post something more exciting next week. :)
