This morning, may I present the most helpful child in this place? Jessalyn loves helping me with chores. She helps put her laundry away, “cook” dinner (I measure, she pours), and even wash the dishes. She pulls up a chair and gets next to me while I wash. Recently I’ve been soaping a scrubber up and letting her go for it. Then I use a soapy sponge to go over her work and voila! A clean dish!
Here she is in action.
The simple fact that she offers to help, she wants to help without me asking her makes me happy.
