Mornings are the busiest part of our day. As I rush around reminding each kid of what they have left to do to get ready, I try to do various house chores. I usually clean when I come home from work or school but throughout the night the kids get up and roam through the kitchen, Hailee may have an accident and change clothes, they secretly create a fort… whatever the case, there is always more work in the morning! A few days ago while we were in our morning rush my 4 year old daughter Hailee decided to change her clothes and leave them in the floor. Fet up, I told her that she needed to pick her clothes up and walk them to the laundry hamper. Then I continued to lecture her about how she needed to start taking care of herself because no one was going to clean up after her when she got older hahaha, I realize now how crazy I sound. Well it turned out that Hailee took my words to heart. Yesterday she made her own lunch, cleaned up her own messes all day and then she decided to make me dinner.
She calls it lettuce soup. It has celery, fruit loops, and milk in it. She stood there with this super excited face just waiting for me to take a bite. So I did, I really did. Oh my goodness, the things we do to make our children happy. Needless to say, I won’t be giving Hailee anymore lectures until she learns her way around the kitchen.
