Mommy's little helper

Every day a different child is my "helper." The helper has extra things they have to do, like sweep after meals and go get me a diaper when I need one. They are my "go to" child for help so that I am not always asking Madison (who is my true blue "go to" girl). The helper also gets to go with me if I have an errand to run (treat!) and they get to stay up an extra 20 minutes and play a computer game. It has been a very helpful system and the children love for it to be their helper day. Today, Cole is the helper but Piper beat him to the broom after lunch! After I finished recording this video I went to upload it and watched Pip carry the broom through the house, through my bedroom and into my bathroom! Once there she quickly became distracted by all the treasures under the sink. Oh well... I'll keep training her - got to make those little hands earn their keep. :)
