The girls were eating dinner when Greg got home from his meetings, so Ellie got done before Greg was done with his dinner. She very excitedly said, "Dad, how about if I clean up all. by. myself! It will be a surprise for you!!!" She then proceeded to clean up her room (kind of a mess since we played with magnetic dolls for over an hour and had dumped, sorted, and strewn about all of the outfits for the four dolls we have), make her bed, and clean up most of the family room. I asked a few times if Lynnie and I could help, and she told me no because she was growed up and could do everything.
