My little helpers My little helpers

The kiddos decided the other day they wanted to lend me a hand and help around the house. (You know your house must be dirty when the kids start volunteering for chores!) Of course at 4, 2, & 1 they weren't a whole lot of help but they were enjoying it so much I couldn't stop them. Washing the dishes was by far their favorite chore.
Really, it's irrelevant that there was more water on the floor than in the sink. And only one cup got broke. It's all about the memory, right? I'm sure in 20 years when I look back at these I'll think it was a perfect little moment. :)

Those cute little hineys. (Umm, yes, Anna Kate's pants are on backwards...)

Even Fred got a bath. See that teddy bear Judd is holding? Anna Kate picked him out of a toy bin at a Christmas event we attended. Juddso has claimed total attachment to him. Whether he is eating, sleeping, or playing he has a tight grasp on little Fred. (Name curteous of his big bro & sis.)

While I don't think I'll be handing over dish duty anytime soon they sure were adorable...and soaked!

Brave woman! Addy is always asking to help wash dishes and the only reason I don't want her to is because I'm afraid they won't get clean. How silly of me. This motivates me to be more concerned about the memories we're building than the efficiency of my home!

Though I have to admit, I have put the kids to work. Recruiting their help in straightening our house has really helped me to stay on top of things more!

And great pictures. I particularly like the one of AK and the way the light is hitting her face. :)
