help out around the house? I feel so blessed to have older children who take a load off my back with a toddler and new baby in the house. They do quite a few chores around here and I am so glad they do because between the time spent taking care of small children and visiting jm, my house would be a hell hole!!!
My older ones are great at helping out. I don't know what I am going to do when school starts back. I have gotten so used to them being here. If I lay Xan down to change him and don't realize he is poopy until I open the diaper I can say "Hey Zach, will you go grab the wipes?" They also help by washing their own dishes, putting their laundry up, etc.
My 5 year old doesnt really do much housework. but he helps me with his brother so that I can do the housework. he keeps him entertained, gets toys for him, he has held a bottle before, getting diapers and wipes for me.
Sarah does the dishwasher and James does the grass and trash. That's the scope of their help around the house. They do however, help a great deal with Daniel. Sarah even does diapers, but James won't do those.
My 15 and 9 year old does the dishes, takes the trash out, keeps their rooms clean, scrubs their bathroom every saturday and helps with their little brother..my 15 YO does his own laundry and goes to my moms house and cleans her house and helps with her laundry since she is disabled.. i am blessed to have a good bunch of kids!!!
