What Cinderella does for me.

Miriam is intensely inhabiting her imagination these days, her favorite personas being Cinderella, the Queen of Heaven, Mrs. Tittlemouse, and Snow White. Note that of the four favorites, three are notorious for their cleaning skills. Hence my joy.

Miriam: "Mummy. I cannot go to the ball until the windows are washed and the laundry folded."

Me: "That's right." (I'm the "mean mother.")

Miriam: "Please, please, let me wash your windows."

And she did. For 30 minutes. Not spotless, but I can live with a four-year-old princess who does her chores.

Thank you, Cinderella.
