My Helper

James just came and told me he wanted to help me clean up the kitchen after supper. He told me wanted to put the plates in the dishwasher and all the forks too. He also really wanted to put the little soap thing in and close the little door (he loves to do that part).

I told him he could help when everyone was finished eating. He looked up at me and said, "Mommy, I don't know what you would do without me."

(I tell him this all the time when he is "helping" me with something.)

I couldn't have said it better myself.


  1. Too cute!
    Both of mine have been fascinated with the dishwasher since they could crawl & pull up on things...I don't get why it's so attractive to little ones.

  2. oh, treasure these times, friend

  3. Please just put a bow on him and stick him under my tree! I don't know what we'd do without that stinker either!

  4. James is so cute! And keep telling him that. He will want to help when he gets bigger and can really be helpful! :)

  5. Gotta love a man that helps out in the kitchen! Ya know he's just a year younger than Avery---do you believe in arranged marriages?=)

  6. Don't you love the little egos that they develop so quickly? They are awesome.
