And I truly do love it!
Today, the house was absolutely destroyed. Toys, paper, crayons, books, all strewn over every room in the house. There were blankets and towels piled high to make their way through the wash. Banana was in the study working on a Math lesson. Bear was in the kitchen working on Science. Bophie was sitting in the living room "reading" a book. I am again trying to get a grip on time management and complete more than I could finish in three days.
As is typical, it is in a moment of chaos that I find JuJu has a stinky diaper. I move into order-barking mode. I remind Banana to focus on her lesson. I ask Bear to continue her work. I instruct little JuJu to round up the wipes. This is after all one of her favorite tasks, taking second only to putting things (not necessarily garbage) into the trash can.
I ask (ok bark) to Bophie to please go fetch a diaper for me from upstairs. The response, "Can I please finish my chapter first?"
This from my 3-year old holding a board book-- and did I mention SHE CAN'T READ!
