Lucy and I were having one of those days last week where she was bored and had no attention span for her usual favorite activities. I was washing some things found at an estate sale and she wanted to help, so I filled the sink with soapy water and gave her a dishcloth.
I couldn't believe how busy this kept her. She was washing, rinsing and drying things for about an hour!
I think it's funny how kids enjoy the simplest of activities. Things that adults think of as a chore.
Just another reminder that kids don't need a lot to make them happy!
I want to try and remember to enjoy simple "chores" more, to find peace in the repetetiveness. Kids are inspiring in their enthusiasm for little things like this.
