So my birthday is the thirty firstof this month and...
" I would absolutely be over the moon happy if you would deep clean your room !"
Facial expression changes a bit... " okay."
I go on..." Mean like a trash bag and a give away bag, use the electric broom to clean up what your rabbit has kicked out and redo your lego storage. If you need more containers, list what kind and we'll get them. Try on all your pants to see what is too small , and go through you t shirt drawers and pull out what you don't wear and make a pile of 'don't want/ too small and the too small, but sentimental"
His eyes start to glaze..., i said " i'd be happy to help if you get stuck?"
He answers " No, i can do it, with breaks, but if you help me, it isn't a birthday present. It's just you doing what you always have to do when we deep clean my room. Birthday presents are surprises. I'll put a Christmas bow on my door when i'm done, okay?"
:-) he sure doesn't wanna, but it warms my heart that he is willing!
