Mommy, we've got to clean up this house. There's food on the floor. I'll get the vacuum.
5 minutes later, tangled up with the vacuum hose:
Mommy, can you help me with the vacuum?
10 minutes later, after successfully vacuuming the kitchen:
Mommy, we have GOT to clean up this dad-gum house. There's play-doh and toys on the floor. It's a big, big mess. You've got to help me. I can't do it by myself. I'll get the toys. Will you please put away the cereal?
I promise I'm not a slave driver. I really don't make him clean the house. I did help him after that. ; )
