Han just got a lesson in vacuuming. I literally had just finished vacuuming the carpet and winding up the cord when she came downstairs and emptied the playground bark from her shoes onto the living room rug. I'd been wondering about the piles in the bathroom, but I assumed it had fallen out when she took her shoes off; as it turns out it was quite deliberate : (
I made her clean it up!!

Oh, yeah,  mine are all grown and they still do things like that, and get to clean up still.

    Good for you! I make my kids take their shoes off at the door when they come in. Just the other day, wouldn't you know it one of them comes tracking in dirt all through the house. You bet I made them clean it up. Kids...gotta love them.

sounds about normal, if I want a 'parade' all I have to do is mop the floor and here they all come

No, but my pets sure muck it up, the minute the floor is cleaned.

My dogs are the worst - especially my little one. She loves to dig up my yard. The other day she got into my wood box and chewed up bark all over the carpet. And right after I bathed them they rolled in the dirt - uhg! That's why I don't enforce the no shoes in the house rule. It's pointless. I tried washing paws everytime they came in, but I got lazy...Still, the kid's shoes were off. She was putting them on at the door before school. I was incredulous when she walked to the middle of the living room and dumped the bark. BUSTED!
