when the kids help...

How have we been running the household without a home helper? Truth be told, our home is not spanking clean, but clean enough and we’re managing alright. Hubby is a blessing… so understanding and so very helpful. The kids are angels too, always wanting to help where they can…

In popo’s house, HQ helps to dry plates, bowls and cutleries before putting them away. When he was younger, when he pestered us to let him help, I suspect his main intention of helping is to have a chance to play with water. But now, we can see that he’s getting productive – cleaning vegetables, washing rice, drying dishes and even washing dishes. Nearly every morning, the kids help to hang the clothes out to dry. HQ can manage pants, handkerchiefs and other small item clothing alright. QQ? She hands out clothe pegs :-). The kids help to bring in the dry clothes too. HQ folds them… all his and his meimei’s clothes, and also towels. The kids love doing this... I think it's fun for them :-) Papa shampoos the cars while HQ rinses off the suds. QQ? She “advises” HQ on where to point the hose :-). And “supervises” on the quality of HQ’s work… hmmm… is there any more bubbles? And getting her face wet while HQ laughs at her :-) Okla… there’s one thing that QQ is really good at… picking up her toys :-)

HQ is such a great helper, and I'm impressed with the range of chores he can perform. He was full of concentration, in the pix where he was hanging the clothes.
