My husband and I were putting away our laundry and we let Declan explore while we did. He decided that under our bed, was a good place. [Note that there is NOTHING allowed under beds here. It drives me crazy. Oh and yeah, the supports under my bed are beat to hell from all of the moves we have done. Yeah, that's it...]
Declan loves to explore all over downstairs too, of course.
Some people think I'm nuts because I vacuum downstairs twice a day (The floor AND baseboards.), swiffer all throughout the day and use our hard floor cleaner (Hoover Floormate... I LOVE that thing!) at least a few times a week, but usually daily. Upstairs I vacuum once a day, because the dogs do not go up there at all. [Side Bar: Stormy is terrified of stairs, so she wont go up them. Emmie and her have to be together 24/7, so Emmie stays downstairs with Stormy. They are co-dependent or something.] Besides the fact that I like everything clean and organized anyway, the baby (and all of the kids before him) exploring all over the floor is a big reason I clean the floor as obsessively as I do. I don't want that little guy army crawling all over and getting all dirty from the floor. Plus, I don't want MY feet getting dirty from the floor.
There you have it. A little look into my floor cleaning insanity.
