Good Help is Hard to Find

Lately my children seem to complain about every.single.thing I ask them to do around the house--even schoolwork, which they know is non-negotiable. It makes me cranky.

But while the Dad and the three older ones were away, I began to empty the dishwasher. Who toddled up, unasked and eager to help?


He grabbed the tableware basket full of clean (non-sharp) utensils and made his way to the cutlery drawer. Without complaining.

Perhaps there is hope for the rest of them.

His handiwork leaves a bit to be desired, but I so appreciate his helpful spirit!
