"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

I can do it all by myself!

So the story behind this is:

The kids were all sitting at the table for a snack of (yes, you guessed it) apples. Sliced cored and plated with peanut butter. The older kids had just gotten home so they helped with the snack. I ran upstairs for a much needed potty break and came back to Scott having spit out all of his chewed-up peels onto the floor! AARRGGH!! So, I got out the vac and attempted to clean up, when he insisted that he was big enough to do it. And he did! Who says 3 yr old can't do chores? ! :-)

Very nice. My 3-year-old nephew and niece loved to help until they find out it wasn't cool to help do chores. I miss those days.

It's good to start them young :).
My kids are asking for a new kid's vacuum that really vacuums. They saw it advertised on tv. I'm thinking this sounds like a pretty good thing!!! Maybe I should check it out!

I'm afraid that the twins will learn all too quickly that chores are a chore.... those older kids sure complain about them. kid vacs that really work ... does sound like a good idea ... then they can have it their own rooms and no luggind the vac around the house.... huumm
thanks for dropping by Jenn.
