Every Mommy needs a helping hand
I’m in the wonderful position of having a little magnet. No, I am not talking about a maggot, maggots are what I’m trying to prevent the little magnet from putting in his mouth (they say it’s a good source of protein, but I do not recommend it).
My magnet is referring to himself as ‘Mommy’s little helper’ and is doing many of my chores at home.
Now you probably say ‘no way, never in a gazillion years’ or you’re shaking your head disapprovingly and uttering a ‘ts ts ts, that house must me a mess’. But only because you don’t know what I am talking about.
Well, maybe you’re right about the mess but I really do have help and it’s not a nanny or a housemaid.
The magnet, that is my ‘Timan’. Other than following my footsteps glued to my butt he loves doing what I’m doing, whatever it is.
So I just need to channel this never-ending energy into something useful for me (and for him), like helping Mommy for the main purpose of having a relaxed and happy Mommy. And ‘Timan’ keeps working and working and working and working because he …
… likes to clean the kitchen (great, I get to work on my blog),
… likes to broom (perfect, I get to drink my coffee, I have to lift the feet up anyway),
… likes to mob (terrific, I always wanted to start this book),
… likes to be in charge of the laundry, for example taking it out of the machine (cool, time to polish the nails ?!?),
… collecting the dry clothes off the rack (time for a chit-chat with the neighbour, to get the latest update what’s going on in our district)
… and folding them (nicely!)
This is why I really l.o.v.e. being a housewife.
Life is good here in paradise with ‘Timan’ (and Hubs too, of course, no, no, I’m not forgetting you).
What other things can I get the little one to do for me? I really need to do some serious thinking about this.
I am just wondering what things are your toddlers helping you with. For sure I’m not the only Mommy with a little helper on hand who runs the show.
