My kids are kind of crazy. At lunch today Jireh was eating her cornbread with some tweezers she found.

Miriam and Jireh both know how to fold washcloths and towels, so earlier today I was asking for their help, and told them to try their hand at folding blankets in the living room. Miriam took a look at them and decided she couldn’t do it. So she started fussing and told me, “Mom, I can’t do it. It’s too hard. I might break my hands and my arms.” Excuses, excuses.

Soren is 15 months today. And in 3 days Jireh will be 2 1/2.

    Wow, that’s great! I’m going to try that excuse for not doing my various household tasks as well. After all, I might break my hands and my arms! Thanks, Miriam.

    I love reading the children’s remarks. It reminds me so much of my household. I was in stitches reading about the trip to work with daddy the other day. We have a list that we’ve modified from Living Life on Purpose by Kym Wright. When the children are 3 they get to crack eggs and it’s a huge promotion in the household. We’ll often snap pictures and every child has been so excited to help. Four is the big day for popcorn, gum and something I forgot, but they could all tell you. Happy days to the little ones. Our Baby Boo is going to be 2 in just a few days.

    So true what you said about not making too big of a fuss over daddy-help. After all, it is parenting, not helping, right?!

  8. Wow, you might get into trouble with making your daughter do something so dangerous as folding towels.  ha ha     Cute story.
    Where do you get your energy?  Is there a Patron Saint of energy????   Seriously, it sounds like you really enjoy and love your kids.  I am looking forward to the day when Emily and Bill are married and start a family.  I pray that I will live long enough to hold a grand child.  What’s cool is that I can hand him or her back to Emily if any crying starts.   Or a diaper gets dirty.
    only kidding….I bet I won’t give any baby back to Emily unless she beats me up.

    I’m definitely going to borrow that line: “I might break my hands and arms!”
