My little helper

Finally, today both the kids are napping at the same time...this is very rare. In fact I couldn't get Banana to take a nap for the past 5 days. Not getting her nap in is taking a bit of a toll on her little body, she woke up with a stuffy nose. Let's hope it doesn't turn into anything nasty!

Bryanna is great! Yesterday, after I laid Maddox down for his morning nap, I came back down stairs. Bryanna pointed out the crumbs he spilled from his high chair and said, "Mamma, he make a mess of your floor!" I replied, "Yeah, you're right. Can you help me clean it?" Before I knew it, she walked over to the closet where the vacuum hose hangs, opened the door and was ready to do the job! She just needs a little help hooking it into the wall, but from there she turns it on and cleans my floor. There is nothing like training my future house cleaners early!

You might as well get all the work you can out of them before you don't get any help at all!

That's awesome! Can't wait till Nathan can do chores. He just loves to throw things in the trash, and it's not always trash! You are getting really good at this blogging thing. I think I could use you to help me with a thing or two. Well, guess we'll be seeing you in SLC this weekend. It's going to be so fun!

Woohoo! It's what I love about kids. They LOVE cleaning and think its the best thing ever. Thanks goodness, since at times I wonder why it was ever invented! She's a super helper and that will be a great blessing the older and more capable she becomes. Good job Bryanna!
