Mr. Helpful

Stinky has the capacity to drive me absolutely batty in one moment and have me totally melting in the palm of his hand the next. Such is the talent of boys right?

This week he decided he was going to learn how to ride his two wheeler (said like this, "my two wheewer") it is so cute coming from his little voice.

So I dug out a wrench and took the training wheels off- put his helmet on him and set him off down the driveway. Three hours. up and down the driveway. It was a long three hours... however I have not laughed and cheered so much in a while so it was well worth it.

Later that night he wanted to do the dishes... yes. Really he was begging to do the dishes (this is my evidence for when he is 12 and he objects strenuously to dish duty)

I agreed. After pushing the wooden rocking horse over he climbed up on it and got to work. I have never seen someone have such fun doing dishes!

Stopping by from SITS. Following your blog! Would love a follow back! And click my ads! And enter my contests!

D1 (3yo) is DYING to do the dishes. We try to make it seem really fun so she always asks, "Dad, when I'm big, can I do the dishes?!" And I tell her, "Sweetie, you can do all the dishes you want."

It's so much fun watching their growing independence! Thanks so much for visiting me on my SITS day!

When he's done, could you send him over here? What a great little worker!

How cute! Trust me, he will NOT want to do that in his teens:)

That is so sweet!!! Maybe it was his way of thanking you for the bike time. I won't let him near the dishes though as I'll have a floor full of water.
