Worker Bee

Elizabeth has gotten to the age where she asks to help me.

Rather than tell her she can't do something and to encourage the whole help mommy out attitude, I let her "clean" some.

Her first job, wiping doors.

Doors are simple and usually don't need cleaning anyway, so I handed her a water bottle.

She loved wiping it down, after she squirted the door.

Now every time I clean, she asks to help.  Then she runs to go get her water bottle...

I only hope this continues into her teenage years. ;)

What a cute working bee you have! Love it when the kids want to help clean! And you're right, hope this last until the teen years and beyond!

How cute! My big guy likes to take his wipes and dust. It's nice when they are so helpful.

Hope it continues for you too! Anderson loves to "help" too! Not sure he is as helpful as he thinks he is, poor boy! :oP
