Out of nowhere, Ballerina Girl has been really interested in the things I do around the house and has been asking me to help. Who am I to decline, right? She’s now decided it’s her job to put away her laundry and she likes to help fold, too. Her folding is cute – she just keeps folding until it won’t stay folded anymore, then she balls it up in her hand and tries to wedge it somewhere so it won’t come unballed.
The other day she asked to help me unload the dishwasher. She was pretty good, too! She’s been very proactive… I can tell she will be a very efficient woman when she grows up. She’s also been helping clean out the turtle tank, and just tries to be very involved in the things I do.
Having said that, it’s kind of bittersweet to see her go from “little girl” mode to a kid who is more capable. I guess the nice thing is pretty soon I can outsource some of my housework to her! lol
So, here’s to my little, soon-to-be-big girl.
