We were hustling and bustling trying to get dinner cooked. In the midst of all the hustling and bustling little man decided to "help" by lining the water bottles on the counter top. Yes, he was in the way. Yes, he made the job of getting dinner cooked and on the table take twice as long. And I was tempted to get frustrated but instead my husband and I embraced it.
We counted with him as he went down the line of bottles. "Ooooonnneee, twooooo, tweeee, foouurr...YAY!"
I have a confession to make. I'm one of those moms that doesn't like mess. And I realize that I have also missed out on a few opportunities to let my kid be a kid due to my excessive need for order and cleanliness.
But this night we slowed down a little bit and played along with his need to "help". It only took five minutes and the laughs and cheers we shared were worth it!!
