The boys are getting to a stage/age where they really like to help. Well, for the most part, they like to help when it's their idea. In general, I'm not the best at accepting help. But, from them, it's easy to accept. They just want so badly to be a part of everything. And, while it's usually a lot messier and a little less quick that way, I have to remind myself to take a breath and just let them do it.
The other morning it was Peter and John Paul wanting to wash the dishes after breakfast.
They ended up doing a really good job, and more importantly, they were so very proud. They've also been feeding and watering the chicks, making their beds, wiping off the table and chairs after meals, and more of the basic stuff. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but it's good for this momma. I can finally take a look from the outside and see what a blessing it is to let others help and the good that it does for the hearts of those who offer.
Hopefully you'll have the opportunity to say "yes" to someone's offer soon, too!
