Actually, Mom is probably shaking her finger at me, or shaking her head in dismay. Once I became a mother I somewhat lowered my standards so I could have a little more quality time with family (sometimes that worked, sometimes not). The irony of that fact is how 'tough' my own daughter felt I was with cleanliness and housework ... little does she know, she had it easy, in comparison. I continue with what she taught me, as I enjoy a clean doman ... I just do it less often, especially as I age ... go figure, huh?
A while back, at my daughter's house, I did a batch of dishes for her and I was amused when she came to rinse them - she 'caught' me - made me re-wash a dish I didn't get clean. It was a new conquest; she'd probably been waiting years to conquer finding mom's imperfection in the kitchen. We giggled, and finished the dishes.
