Thursday Thirteen - How Princess "Helps" Mommy

Thirteen Things about how Princess "helps" Mommy
Because I am a new mom, I am just amazed at what a 17-month-old can do. When Princess does these things, it puts a smile on my face (especially when she does them without being asked).

1. Throws her diaper in the trash.

2. Turns the light off for me.

3. Shuts doors for me.

4. Hangs her coat up.

5. Cleans up her messes - toys, food, etc.

6. Pulls teabags out of wrapper.

7. Helps making dinner by stirring, dumping ingredients, etc.

8. Cleans her highchair tray after she eats.

9. Says "thank you" (in sign language) without being told.

10. Greets people at the door.

11. Reminds me that she needs to brush her teeth.

12. Vacuums. (She loves to vacuum.)

13. Take a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon!!!!!!

My son is 7 months old. It amazes me what they learn in such a short amount of time!

SOOOO, you solved the napping thing! Sounds great - 2-3 hours must feel wonderful. Sure hope you are resting yourself during that time - I used to paint my toenails so I had to keep my feet up off my shaggy carpet :) Nice post - I wish I was there to see all your (collective group!) sweet babies grow up . . .

Whoa. And I'd thought my kids were good; they didn't do a lot of that stuff for me!

she likes to vacuum! Mine cries when I turn it on - it is kind of noisy though. Glad to hear that she is napping well. She is a sweetheart!

I'm very new at this, but wanted to say that I enjoyed your Thursday Thirteen lists.

I have 2 girls, 18 months apart, who are teenagers now, but I remember the 'little' days very well, and how I was so concerned wondering how I would deal with the second child, but it's funny... they just seem to blend together. Now, they're best friends, do everything together and are virtually inseperable.

Good luck and God bless!
