House Cleaning Day...

Elsie is my helper-girl...she loves to help me out...well, James loves to help too, but it just so happens that Elsie is a much bigger helper than her little brother!
One day I was going on about needing to vacuum, but how I couldn't because I knew it would stimulate contractions...So Elsie eagerly announced that she would do the vacuuming for me! This was her first time using the vacuum...so she was very excited and cannot wait to use it again! It was far from perfect, but her willingness to help out made it perfect!
And as Elsie vacuumed, I sat and worked on relaxing my belly...And James helped out by dumping his baskets of blocks and magnet sticks out all over the freshly vacuumed floor...we know how to work together and team work quite well!

You're one lucky mother to have such sweet kids! Letting your kids help you with the chores can help in developing their sense of responsibility. It's not just about making your life easier but it’s also teaching them how to be more responsible and make a habit of cleanliness. It's better to start teaching them at an early age because you are making this habit remain with them forever. Take care! :)
