Thank you Bill Cosby...

My daughter is upstairs cleaning her room.
Happily, cheerfully, and well.
Oh, and I only had to ask her once.

Why is this miracle of motherhood occurring?

It is occurring because of Little Bill, a lovely cartoon created by Bill Cosby.

Little Bill is taught how to make cleaning fun by his great-grandma, Alice the Great. She teaches him how to Zippity Zoo his room, and they have fun putting the room to rights.

"1..2.. zippity zoo." She says, as she places a shoe into the closet.

So now Marlena is upstairs, singing "Pillow... pillow... zippity zillow" as she zippity zoos her room to rights. I didn't even have to borrow the idea from the show. I asked her to clean her room, and she said "I will zippity zoo it right now!"

Bless you Bill. Bless you.
