Hallie is a wonderful little helper! She helps me out around the house all the time...she's best at making messes, though (as you can see in the picture of us sweeping--just look around, her stuff is everywhere! Of course, if you know me, you know I don't need a lot of help in making messes--heehee!). But, Hallie has really started paying attention to us cleaning up. She loves to help me sweep and she loves to throw things away! She looks for things that she can throw into the trash can. For a bit, we had trouble with her throwing things away that were not trash--books, her sippy cups, pacifiers, bracelets...the list goes on. But I think she's getting the hang of what goes in the trash. Yesterday she went into our bedroom and looked through the laundry basket to find every dryer sheet she could...and one by one she wadded them up with her tiny hands and threw them in the trash can. It was precious! I hope she has a better love for cleaning than her mommy does! HA!
