Is there such a thing as a "clean gene" ? lol

I thnk there is. Because I am a mess. I hate cleaning. Seriously.
My SO is a pretty neat guy. He likes things to be neat and tidy.
Our 14 month old daughter likes to go around with a rag, wiping the floor.If she drops crackers or somethign on the floor, she bends down and picks every single one up and puts it back on the plate or bowl or whatever. She attempts to pick up her toys and put them in the toybox,lol.
Now, I know she sees me doing this (even though I hate it, I hafta do it, can't live in a dirty house,lol).

So, I think she has the "clean gene" and she inherited it from daddy,lol.

  • Well, if there is such a thing - I got the double whammy! I am over the top OCD when it comes to clean!

  • I don't know if I would call it a "clean" gene, but usually perfectionist people tend to be more tidy than others, and that is an inheritable trait I would imagine. My dad is a perfectionist and can't stand disorganization and messes...I am the exact same way...and so is my grandma.

  • One of my three children is like this. I do think it is an inherited personality trait to need organization or order. The child of mine who has it is a little bit type A and OCD like me.
