Put 'em to Work Young!
A few months ago we noted that Ronan had a certain penchant for sweeping; he's now moved on to scrubbing the floor after he's put away the broom. What a delightful surprise that Ronan seems to be doing what his parents have, at least for the first 35 years of their lives, refused to do- clean.
The photos above were taken when Ronan came across a sponge left on the floor. Per his normal behavior I had just assumed he'd stick it in his mouth and then wander on to whatever was next on his list of sparkley things to investigate. Much to my surprise, after turning the sponge over in his hands a few times, he bent down and starting wiping the floor with it. Then he stood up, moved onto another section of the floor he deemed in need of attention, squatted again, and repeated his scrubbing. Our tidy little fourteen-month-old... we just couldn't be more proud. Looks like he is taking after Grammy and Nanna already!
