A Drawer for Little Hands

This is a special drawer in our spare room. It is kept specially for Bubbles to put in her clean laundry.

When I am out in the service balcony unpegging her clean clothes, she'll run to take armloads of them to this drawer.

I'll hear the pitter patter of her feet as she repeatedly mumbles Bubbles' clothes, Help Mummy as she goes about this household chore with all her toddler diligence. She usually makes about 4-5 trips (with some help from me) to bring in all her laundry.

At the end of it all, she will close the drawer with a flourish, and wear a very satisfied expression on her face :) I really enjoy these moments of shared responsibilities!

:) does she clap her hands, signaling a job well done? Sweetie pie she is, isn't she?

Haha, she does do that for certain things, but not this one. She just looked mighty pleased :)

I am thankful because I don't need to find something else to occupy her when I am doing these chores! She does want to please too, and feels important to be helping me :)

So cute! does she call herself Bubbles?

domesticgoddess:
Waha! No she doesn't :) She calls herself by her real name. She speaks in 3rd person, which I've realised many kids her age do! It is funny to hear!
