I am sure anyone with two little ones in less than two years can relate - life is busy! When they are so close in age, the older isn't as much of a helper as she could be if she was older. However, they are becoming the best friends and I wouldn't trade that for the world.
As Gracie gets older though she is becoming a big helper. The other day, I put the kids in the bathroom and started the water for their bath, ran upstairs to get their clothes, heard "eww...you stinky, baby" and entered the to see this scene:
After successfully removing his diaper and trying to put the new one, she says to me "I be back - wait." I heard her little feet pounding through my house and she walks in with an entire pack of diapers and says - "Diaper broken, I fix it!"
I treasure these days of my little helper and prayer that she continues to want to help. I do hope that one day she learns to successfully change a diaper and realizes that they are not broken just because she can't find the tabs. :-)
Do you have a special treasure this week? I'd love to read about it.
