Toddlers and Chores

Just the other day Jude and I were reaching into the garage for the sand toys, when Jude spotted the swifter leaning against the wall and insisted it come with us.  Here I am thinking we're about to embark on another fun day at the park, and Jude's thinking "wouldn't it be more fun to mop the floor!"  Since toddlers love to play with brooms, mops and dust pans, we negotiated a time out for tidying-up before we sunned-up!  
Always room for one more chore,

P.S. How have your grandkids/kids helped out around the house?

  1. Soon enough Jude will stop being fascinated by cleaning up. My grandchildren, ages 6-18, are well over it! But they like to help me do things that have some artistic aspect, such as setting the table, complete with a centerpiece.

  2. You are so right! I will take the help as long as offered...just takes a little longer to get the job done!
