Now, to be honest...it can be more of a hinder than help most of the time... having a 14 month old try to help you takes a lot of time and patience, and time ...and patience ( you get it ) ...so why do I let him help me?!?!
I let him help because I want him to learn that he's more important to me than the house work...
I let him help because I want him to learn to work (wink, wink)
It would sure be much easier and faster for me to do it by myself and not have to re-wash the dishes that he picked out of the dish rack and placed back on the sink, or re-mop the dirty mud prints off the clean bathroom floor...
This is all new to me...I have to admit, I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to cleaning. I like everything just right and I like to do it myself...so this has been a hard adjustment for me. Yes, yes, I know...wait till I have more kids, then that will sure be a big adjustment!!!
All of this is worth it though when I see his contented smile....
He's happy to be mommy's helper!!!
Who cares if it takes me 2 hours to do the dishes?!?! I'm going to enjoy this precious time with the
and....after we're done with the dishes...I will thank him and praise him for being such a good helper!!!
Have a happy day!!!
Cherishing the moments,
