Re: Chores

Jen, this is the perfect age to get him started. Don't feel like you're a slacker at all! Have him help you as you do things around the house. This age is great because they love to help mom out. Give him a wet sponge or rag and have him wipe down the cupboards or something. Washcloths and dishtowels are a great size for them to learn to fold, etc. My 4 yo and 2 1/2 yo were helping me make a salad tonight by shredding the lettuce and picking apart the cauliflower into smaller pieces (clean hands are always a must...those little ones put their hands in scary places!) and they had a blast esp. the 4 yo who tossed the salad with her hands. They're too funny sometimes!
