Nolan is such a sweetheart, and he loves to help out around the house almost as much as he loves to make a big mess! This morning, I was carrying a basket of clean laundry up the stairs from the basement. I set it down on the ground so I could close the baby gate, and Nolan grabbed it and dragged it into the living room for me. When I saw him go for it, I was sort of expecting him to dump all the clean clothes on the floor, not drag it into the living room for me.
Then he helped me fold it! Daddy took some pictures because it was the first time he had ever seen Nolan “helping” with chores.
After the laundry was folded, I asked Nolan if he could take a few tissues to the garbage for me. He also picked up the dryer sheet and threw that out too. Then he came back looking for more to do, so I asked him to carry an empty mug into the kitchen for me. He usually puts his empty sippy cup on the counter, but I guess the counter was pretty loaded up with baking supplies from last night’s baking experiment, so there wasn’t any room.
Instead of putting it on the counter, he put it on top of the garbage pail.
Does this mean I need to start paying him an allowance?
