I’ve talked about Elias helping me with chores before…such as unloading the dishwasher or doing laundry. Today I think he did his first official chore all by himself.
We were playing with his tool bench when I heard the washer stop. “Mommy’s going to go put the clothes in the dryer, then can you help me do the kitty food, Elias?”
“Ya,” he replied.
So I went to load the dryer. I first stopped by and got the cat food bowl ready, then went to finish the laundry. As I was walking back to get Elias for the cat food chore, I was stopped in my tracks. He had opened the closet where we keep the cat food, opened the bag, and started scooping it into the bowl. He missed a bit….but I was still very proud of him. I think I’ll make this his first official chore…
