Days with my great little helper

I am going to blow everyone's mind and do another post within days of my last one! Lately Josh has been making me laugh and smile at every moment. My mom told me the other day that I am a truly lucky lady with an enthusiastic and nice little boy. I was reminded of that again when today as I started doing the dishes, Joshy grabbed a chair and pushed it over to the sink and said "I'm gonna clean up too Mommy!" He was so excited. Even though his help should really be typed as "help," as it gets in my way and adds extra clean up for me, I am so grateful for his enthusiasm to help me that it's worth it. I mean how long will helping me clean up be his favorite thing to do? So here's to you my little helper!!


Can you tell that he is in a horse phase (more like obsession) right now?




This is how Joshy loaded the dishwasher, he was so proud of himself!


This wasn't really Josh helping me, but I thought it was funny. He came and got me, so excited that he couldn't spit his words out. Finally he told me that he had made movies for Spirit to watch, and this is what I found. (Spirit is the wonderful horse movie on the TV- it has been Joshy's favorite for most of his life, but lately has made a comeback...again with the horse craze!) He also got very upset when I called Spirit a boy- he thinks any horse with such beautiful hair must be a girl- maybe that's why he gave Spirit Pride and Prejudice to watch?

He is darling, and how fun to have a little helper. Also, loved the DVD idea --- how funny he is in to horses, although much better than barbies and dolls. It is fun to see more posts from you. Have a great day!!! xoxoxo
