Super Helpers!

I get my groceries delivered from (life saving!!). The other day I forgot the groceries were coming. I had just gotten out of the shower and had the two wee ones in the tub when I heard Mr. P yelling to tell me the doorbell was ringing. I quickly ran to get dressed and had the boys open the door and start bringing in the groceries while I tended to the wet ones....I mean wee ones.

I came down and signed for the groceries and helped carry the rest inside and onto the counter. I went back upstairs to dress the wild ones....I mean wee ones.
When I came down I found these two Super Helpers putting the groceries away! WOW! They did such a great job. Perhaps it wasn't the anally orderly way I do it but they took the initiative and I was so proud of them!
These Super Helpers have been working hard all summer with their chores. They are both doing a great job. But, Busy Guy (only 4) is really doing a bang up job. He jumps right to it and goes down his list completing each task. What a worker bee! They get $2.00 at the end of the weeks for the chores. They also earn "extra" money....25 cents...for extra tasks. It is working great. The biggest help for me is they now put all of their folded laundry away. Yeah!


  1. I love it when my kids surprise me by their capabilities! It reminds me that I don't need to be the micromanager that I try to be. Anal too. Your kids are cute as all get out, btw :)

  2. That is so sweet! ...and so helpful, I wouldn't even care where they put the groceries as long as ice cream didn't go in the cupboard. :-)

  3. I truly believe that working for money is a good thing. Also working to help someone else (without the money) is a good thing. As their great-Grampa Dick always said, "All work is good. there is no small work. Only small people."
    And yes, Nana, the ice cream stuff is the only thing to worry about.

  4. I haven't been blogging in a while, and it's good to "be back." You are a terrific mommy :) Your family sure looks happy! How awesome to have groceries delivered :)
