Mopping Up



I know, that print is too small to read. What it says:

Baby Mops

* Make your children work for their keep

After the birth of a child, there's always the temptation to say, "Yes, it's cute, but what can it do?" Until recently, the answer was simply, "Lie there and cry," but now babies can be put on the payroll, so to speak, almost as soon as they're born.

Just dress your young one in Baby Mops and set him or her down on any hardwood or tile floor that needs cleaning. You may at first need to get things started by calling to the infant from across the room, but pretty soon they'll be doing it all by themselves.

There's no child exploitation involved. The kid is doing what he does best anyway -- crawling. But with Baby Mops, he's also learning responsibility and a healthy work ethic.

That is wonderful! I wish I'd had those for my children. I have to rely on daughter's cat coming to visit to clean under cupboards for me.

LOL. I don't suppose Harvey would tolerate a Dust Cat taking up residence?

I want a baby now. Do they make a cat version?

Serena Joy said...

Sure! I think one of my porch dwellers is about to have some kitty-mops. Can I put you down for one?

Now I can put my 8 month old nephew to work!

Clean boy clean!

Serena Joy said...

Absolutely! Make that baby boy earn his strained carrots. LOL.

I'm so glad your co-workers are having some fun. And tell them I love them, too. LOL.:)
