“Mommy! Remi is shaving her legs with her chicken strip!”
It probably should have surprised me, but it didn’t. Remington is in that stage. She wants to do the things big people do, and will attempt to accomplish that by whatever means possible.
Lately, she’s been especially anxious to “help out” around the house…if you can call it helping!
I recently caught her diligently scrubbing the bumper of our SUV…with her toothbrush.
Not long after that I found her carefully cleaning up the milk she had spilled…with her tongue.
Honestly, it’s impossible to get mad when she is so determined to help out! And of course, it makes me think, What if I were that determined to help?
In fact, what if we all wanted to help so badly that we just DID? No excuses, no “I don’t know how to fix it.” What if we just TRIED and did the best we could do, with what we have, like Remi? After all, even if the results weren’t really that helpful (like Remi’s!) to the people we wanted to help, maybe it would be good for US to have tried.
