Macy has always been a great helper. When she's "in the mood," she will help with just about anything you ask her to do. Earlier today I was changing London's diaper and asked her to throw it away for me, she gave me "I don't really want to..." I told her "I'm sorry that you don't really want to, but I asked you to, so you need to go throw it away" "FINE. fine fine fine." and can you even believe that when I told my husband about this he gave me an apple-doesn't-fall-far-from-the-tree comment?
Her favorite "chore" right now is helping Daddy with the dishes, she loves playing with the bubbles... and trying to eat them... Daddy is working on that.
I love these progression pictures. I've started having Macy take her laundry basket into the laundry room, and what else is more fun the hopping into a basket that is being drug across the floor by your big sister?! Macy doesn't think that's very fun though, at least when she's the one doing the pulling.
"Okay okay, I'll get out"
I'm hoping to get her to be able to fold and put away the clothes, scrub the bathrooms, mop, and vacuum before her 3rd birthday. Then I can kick back with a movie, a blanket and eat some bon bons (whatever those are)... I think we're off to a great start.
