The highs and lows of parenting and real estate.

Pinkie and the Bleach

We’ve been seized by the cleaning bug at our house lately. It probably has at least a little bit to do with how mobile little Gray has become. Let me tell you, that child does not like to be contained. If he can manage it, he scales the barriers we erect, and if he isn’t able to climb over whatever it is, he screams his cute little head off. So we’ve done our best to clean and baby proof as large of an area as possible so that he can have the run of the place.

Two fun new tools we’ve used as aids in this process:

One of my birthday presents from Jason was this cute little gal.

If you’ve never heard of a Roomba, it’s a little robot vacuum that tackles all types of surfaces at once. Both our cat, Macintosh, and Jason were fascinated by it and spent the hour it took to do our entire living watching it work. I really like that he bought me the pink version that donates 20 percent of its proceeds to breast cancer research. Plus, I LOVE how much cat hair and dirt ended up in its cute pink belly.

Now she just needs a name… any suggestions?

I also am enjoying this tool we got two for $5 at the grocery store.

You should have seen that gleaming white grout before I tackled it with the bleach pen last weekend (I so should have taken before pictures). I used almost the whole pen for the 30 square feet of tile in our extra bathroom, but it was well worth it.

I love a clean house… of course, I’d love it even more if I had someone else to clean it for me, but at least I’ve got help!

  1. I also love a clean house thats been cleaned by someone else.. I don’t know how you manage it with TWO kids! And mines not even mobil yet..

  2. I’ve never tried one of those bleach pens, but I love having good cleaning tools. I’ll keep it in mind. (Thankfully, I have no white grout. The floors are gray and the bathrooms are vinyl sheeting. One day, I dream of cobalt blue tile flooring in the bathrooms.)

    As far as names go for the Roomba, how about “Rosa?”
    Roombie Rosa
    Rosy the Roomba
    hmmm…
