My Little Helpers

I love it that the kids are old enough to really help with household chores. I mean, they have always helped out in one way or the other. For instance, they help me with the laundry... taking the dirty clothes to the laundry room, helping me load the washer and unloading the dryer. And, they help me unload the dishwasher when we clean the kitchen. And they have always been pretty good about picking up their toys at the end of the day. But, now I have been teaching them to fold towels & washcloths... easy things that I'm not so anal about. They are learning to make their beds. They'll wipe down the table, counters and cabinet facings for me. And, the other day, one of the twins even pushed a vacuum around the house. So, I am really excited that we have been able to add on some "bigger" chores lately. However, I am greatly anticipating the day that they can clean the bathrooms! That will be awesome!
