Great, I thought, one more chore to add to my list. Half-heartedly, I asked Avery to help by cleaning up the living room while I finished up in the kitchen. A few minutes later, I went back into the living room to find it completely clean. There were no clothes, books or toys to be seen. It was like a magic fairy had flown into my house and cleaned while no one was watching.
Just as I was congratulating myself for having a 3 year old and a new pet fairy who can now work together to clean my house, I noticed the fireplace screen looked weird.
Turns out, good house cleaning fairies are hard to come by these days. I give Avery an A for effort and creativity.
