The kids were so very helpful this morning! As Doug was fixing pancakes, the kids decided to be involved! So, he tried to teach the girls how to tell when the pancakes needed to be flipped and how to flip them. Steven was in an "I need Daddy" mood, so when Doug's arm gave out and he just couldn't hold the boy any longer, we managed to get him to sit in a nearby chair by promising him some bacon!
In an attempt to distract Steven from being under Doug's feet, I asked if he wanted to help me transfer clothes to the dryer and reload the washer, something he usually greatly enjoys. By the time we got to the washer, he wanted to do it all by himself! Such a helpful boy!
