I got so tickled with my kids tonight. Here's a mama brag story for you! We got home after a long day at work/play and needed to clean the house before bed. I'm a freak about it, because, really, that's the only time I have to clean and then I know it will be neat for a few hours.
Mercedes promptly started unloading the dishwasher, Jared took the garbage out and sorted the laundry, I handwashed a few dishes and sharp knives, and Mercedes swept and mopped the kitchen and the dining room.
I love that spending so much time together leads to such enthusiastic kids. They see how hard I work, and they're quick to respond with help!
