Dear Mummy, its funny how the simplest of chores can turn out to be the best treasured family moments. Over the weekend we had 3 generations (Daddy and Grandpa and me) cleaning cars out on the drive. I was desperate to get in on the action and I’ve never cleaned a car before so this was my first time!
We moved the cars to front of the house so we had easy access to the kitchen tap, as my folks don’t have an outdoor hose. My mummy dressed me into some casual clothes after I tried to persuade her to let me wear my sparkly princess dress. She was such a party popper, however I did manage to wear my Mickey Mouse ears for a little while which went with my Dismaland t-shirt!
It was a really bright and sunny day and we were cleaning my mummy’s old car ready to sell it. It was very dirty and the alloys were black to begin with, I was amazed how shiny they came up. I kept staring at my reflection in the door panels and I was the perfect height to clean the side skirts of the car.
It kept me occupied for a good hour and was actually really good fun and great exercise for a kiddy like me with all that stretching and bending down to dip my sponge in the water bucket. I even managed to get in a bit of water yoga as well, mucking around with the water and playing with the soap suds. I loved splashing the sponges in the buckets and dripping the water on the pavement.
I loved seeing the results and the car changing colour from a dusty grey to a shiny silver before my eyes. I helped my folks carry water from the kitchen tap to the driveway and poured the dirty water down the drain. I was a really good little helper.
Do you like cleaning cars? It sounds like such a boring task but can actually be great fun. It helped me listen and follow instructions, made me feel that I was a responsible ‘big girl’ by carrying the water and gave me the opportunity to burn off some pent-up energy.
