The Old-Fashioned Family has been sick sick sick this week with one super-nasty cough/cold/sinus infection. It all started Easter afternoon when we rushed our little Bird to the hospital when she couldnt breathe upon waking from her nap. Turns out it was croup, but as we had never seen that before, it was really scary! Soon after my husband and I both became ill as well, and we’re still not totally over it.
The only good things about being this sick is that it afford us a lot of family time together, even if it was sick and miserable time! :) And, I go to do more blog posts than normal, which was also fun for me.
I have so many more posts that I want to do soon but for now I just wanted to share this darling video of our little Bird helping me with the laundry. I was encouraged by a mentor of mine a few months ago that children can start helping with chores even when they are very little. I took up the challenge and was amazed that indeed our little bird, only 22 months in this video, was able to help me put an entire basket of laundry in the dryer by herself. The only downside: she likes helping so much that when the basket is empty she gets sad and cries a little when we have to close the door! So sweet!
In the comments I would love to hear from you moms out there what chores your little toddlers are able to help with around the house. Thanks for stopping by, ladies, and hope your Spring is as happy, and hopefully a little more healthy, than ours has been!
God bless, ladies!
