Pigtails and Pigpens!

The house is a wreck.  I need to clean.  I need to clean out.  And the kids love to make messes and not quite clean them up so I'm cleaning up behind them as well.  Sure, we've taught them the "Clean Up!" song, but that just doesn't always cut it.  And then there are those times that they need to go down for naps or bedtime and you just can't insist that they drop it all and clean up before you run them upstairs.  Heck, if they are willing to go and it isn't World War 3, then I'm ready to run them upstairs. 
But it means that I clean up a lot of things though I never really get to clean house.  Sometimes I find myself cleaning up their bathroom while they take a bath.  I worry that I'm distracted and not watching them like a hawk, but they usually keep their heads above water.
Today I cleaned the baking table.  It's a small area that has the toaster oven, cutting boards, etc on it, but was covered in flour and stray sugar so I scrubbed away.  It's small, but it's still an accomplishment and that will have to do for now.
Tomorrow I will..........................................
