So now onto what I am striving towards. I have been working on doing the house work calmly and cheerfully, while also getting the children to help along side me. Anna is at an age where she can actually be of some help. The challenge with her is to get her to actually do it. This is where enthusiasm comes into play. Because we like cleaning! Cleaning is fun! Right, Anna? Anna...? The twins love to help, but unfortunately are very bad at it.
Samuel is a very, very busy guy, and the best way to keep him content is to keep him working. If I don't set him at a task, he will find his own. In the picture above, I walked in on him washing the dishes. He managed to do this without even a stool. These past few days, he has been my little helper, working right along side me with everything.
All this has helped with the flow and rhythm of our home, and has made me more.... Tired. Sometimes being happy is so much work. Really though, I feel better too.
