Helpful Kids

For the last couple of days we have been getting ready for The Fourth of July.  The kids “helped”  me make cupcakes and red, white and blue strawberries.

This boy loved the blue sprinkles!

The kids always love to help in the kitchen.

It ends up a huge mess. It takes me twice as long. My patients is tested. They usually end up arguing about who does what. It would be so much easier to put on a movie for them and do it myself!

The kids asked to take pictures of themselves with their cupcakes. They were proud of them. They had fun. We spent time together. We talked.  I showed them how to follow directions.

It was SO worth it!

That is my job. Teach them. Love them. Take time for them.

So, next time they ask to help. I hope I remember it’s worth it!

  1. I didn’t know you had a blog until seeing the link on Facebook just now. This post is so true…it DOES take so much longer, but it is so worthwhile to build memories with the kids! 🙂

    Cute strawberries!

    • I just started it dawn! I’ve always wanted to just never did. I hope it turns out to be a good scrapbook for me. Thanks for your comment. 🙂
