My "brillant" idea

I desperately needed to mop my kitchen floor earlier this week. It had just been too long between moppings, and I couldn't find the time to do it. I had the "brillant" idea to have the girls help me out. They put on their swimsuits because I knew that they would both end up wet. Then we filled a bucket with warm soapy water. I gave each of them a washcloth and away we went. Everything was going well at first. They were "washing" the middle of the floor and I was getting the corners. Then I heard "Uh-oh!" and turned in time to see the whole bucket of water spill on the floor. I had a bigger mess than I was planning for, but the girls had a great time. Note to self: If I ever do this again, don't fill the bucket so full!
