Helping Mum #Magicmoments


It's always nice when the kids offer to help out around the house (without me having to ask them) it does mean a lot to me....As I can do with all the help I can get.

My boys like to help me most of the time.... from washing up...helping me with the cooking...cleaning surfaces with the sprays and cloths always goes down well...and just recently they offered to help me paint.

Errr well I was a bit worried and said "No" as I had thoughts of large blobs of paint all over my carpet....But they persisted and persisted and I gave in .... and I was delighted....they really helped out...it was fantastic I was so impressed.

I want them to be independent men as they grow up and help take responsibility around the home...yet at the same time I don't want to give them a list of chores.....As long as they take a little responsibility I'm happy...but for now all this helping me is all good and I love it....long may it continue.

  2. Fab! Mine love doing helpful jobs too, though I'm not sure how long it will last! I would definitely hesitate before letting them get their hands on paint, but you're right, sometimes if you give them the responsibility they'll surprise you with what they can do. Great #MagicMoment. x

  4. I'm starting to get some help now that is really useful, instead of the sort of 'help' that actually makes everything takes longer. Good for you for giving the responsibility.

  7. Great to get them involved, am guessing though you didn't let them choose the colour of the paint.

  8. How fantastic to have the boys so willing to help out. They will make amazing husbands one day! Sounds like you've hit the right balance with 'chores' and helping out being fun x

  9. Brilliant stuff, you must be pleased they are helping! my toddler picked up a bit of rubbsih today and put it in the bin, without any prompt from me! Not sure it will last though
