Making Do

Cleaning is the wuggies' obsession of the month. More exciting even than trains and trash trucks, although not quite as exciting as talking about Jesus and the cross and his owies and how now he's alive again. If offered the choice between going to the zoo to visit the monkeys or cleaning the house, I quite honestly don't know which itinerary they would choose for the day.

This passion of theirs is a wonderful thing, and greatly to be encouraged. So very developmentally appropriate, and the foundation for a lifetime of good habits, and a sign of little hearts desirous of general helpfulness and all things amicable.

And they actually would be very helpful, and come very close to offsetting their next greatest passion--making messes--but for two things. A) we keep the cleaning supplies locked up out of reach, and B) our wuggies are very resourceful indeed.

Soooooo.....

Does anyone know how in the world to get honey off of windows?

Try white vinegar. Some third world countries use that normally to clean windows, and the acidity might just break up the honey goo.

It may also be the time to fill a few squirt bottles with water.

The saying "you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar" comes to mind....

Thanks for the tip.

Autumn loves her squirt bottle of water(which I got at the 99 cents store). It is especially handy when I am spraying prewash on the laundry and Autumn wants to help.

The water bottle would work for the Wuggies, but for the honey all you need is extremely hot water. Then windex. That is great that your kids are going through that stage, mine never did. But they are still very helpful around the house.
