My Own Personal Maid

Whenever I babysit my niece, who is seven, she always wants to help me "do jobs" whether I am cleaning or not. After a few times of her helping me out, I finally told her that I would start paying her. Oh, how her eyes lit up! One day she cleaned my whole kitchen all for a BUCK! Now this is a maid service that I can handle. Today, she helped me organize our game cupboard, empty garbages, and clean the kitchen again. I forgot to pay her, but she will at least be getting a buck and a quarter. She claims that she will take a quarter for her services, but I insist at least paying her a dollar. I may just start having her come on a regular basis. I love having my own personal maid!

I've tried bribing my own kids to get them to clean, but they would rather sit in their own filth for a month before even thinking about cleaning. I don't know what it is, but it's always easier for kids to clean up messes at other peoples houses than their own.

That is seriously my dream come true. Ohhh why don't I have someone that will clean my house for a dollar. Oli wants to clean for a dime but, I think him helping me is harder than me doing it by myself.
