Join Them!

My kids are great teachers.  They teach me how to slow down.  They show me what really matters.  They help me get back to the basics and focus on the Finer Things.

Children are all about simplicity.  Feed me.  Clothe me.  Love me.  Feed me.  They like to be fed, too.

I had a couple of choices when my little scavengers bellied up to the apple crisp bar yesterday.

  1. Scold them and move them and get them busy on something else so that i could get something done.
  2. Join them!

I joined them.  🙂  There were plenty of apples to go around, our morning snack was taken care of, and we had lots of fun!  Oh, and the apple crisp turned out perfectly yummy, too!  And for those with a keen eye, that would be a sports bra around my baby’s neck.  She had started folding laundry for me in the other room.  Such good helpers I have!

  1. They are so cute! I would want to join them too!

  2. Kids really are simple, aren’t they? I wrote about slowing down with my kids this week, too. They’re so good for me that way. Glad you enjoyed your sweet little helpers!

  3. I love it! What a great reminder (a reminder that I really need), and heartwarming too. Yay for fresh apples!

  4. How sweet! 🙂 I remember my mom doing that. Or giving me the bowl to lick – and leaving generous amounts of licking material in the bowl 🙂

  5. Too sweet!

  6. That looks like a lot of fun! I also enjoy when my little helper approaches me and beseeches me for “bites” as I’m cooking. 🙂

  7. Adorable! My kids are fantastic snitchers and I love to help them out!

  8. What is with underwear around the neck? I really think it must be a universal fascination. That always cracks me up!

    I just love your tip. There are times when I am guilty of scolding and not joining. I have been working on that lately though. Thanks for the encouragement.

  9. You remind me to JOIN IN on the snitching… THANKS!
    CUTE KIDS by the way!
