Many Hands Make Light Work
“If I help you, it’ll be done in half the time and then we can play.”
I was more than a little shocked to hear those words come out of four-year-old Tyler’s mouth! Not because he doesn’t like to help–he does. He’s the neatest, most organized four-year-old I’ve ever met. What surprised me was the logic behind his words–that two of us could do the job in half of the time.
We’ve always modeled work before play and gotten Tyler and Austin involved in tidying and cleaning. And if they ever pick up the Swiffer or a dust cloth, there’s much celebration!
