Ellie is truly helping me these days, in many ways.
She loves to empty the silverware rack in the dishwasher. She hands me each piece individually, says, “Na-win” (her happy sound!), and goes back for the next one.
She helps clear the table after dinner.
She puts her dirty clothes in the hamper.
She absolutely adores going down to the basement to do laundry with me. When we wash the diapers, she always carries the covers upstairs (the covers in her arms while she is in my arms).
To any moms (or aunties or anyone else with experience with kids) who reading this – how do you encourage your kids to help you? What jobs have you found that they can do, even when they’re this little? I want to keep this good thing going!
