|Ted, not quite two, helping out with the dusting.|
We did those things this morning and celebrated this small milestone; our children have become partners in our home.
Rather than just serving them, as it seems one does while they are littles, they have grown up to take their places as integral pieces of our little family machine.
When they return, they will have zucchini bread for snack and a lovely peach crisp after dinner (pesto & garden tomatoes over pasta, of course!).
But before dinner, I will ask, gently, "Have you done your chores?"
