Dust if you must, but there's not much time, with rivers to swim and mountains to climb, music to hear and books to read, friends to cherish and life to lead.
I'm not sure who penned this quote but it's a quote that my Mom emailed me...so I took it literally and got my kid to do the work while I frittered away my time. Kidding!
As I watched Mia fold the laundry I was reminded that my Bep used to let me fold cloths. I was so eager to do it until it became my job. Then I whined until it was probably easier for my Bep to do it herself but she stood her ground and trained me to work. My Mom also let me bake at a very early age which I imagine would have been easier for her to do herself considering the outcome of some of the first tries. Now I'm the trainer and once my fingers have lost the itch to take over the task it is wonderful to watch my little helper and be proud of her accomplishment.
