monkey see... monkey do

Through the course of a day, there are many things I routinely do that I don't think twice about.  Run, laundry, dishes, yard, Aspen, errands, etc.  ONE DAY with a toddler will make you think twice about things you do out of habit.  Aspen has already figured out how to start the dishwasher, load the washing machine, put on my shoes,  take care of her baby (or Elmo... if he is around), and work in the yard.  Anything else she sees me do is fair game as well.

This gives new definition to my mothers' saying "Make your words both short and sweet, you never know which ones you'll eat".

At least she is getting the important things learned first... dishes, laundry, yardwork :D

I love this! So true. Kids really make you stop and think about what you do everyday!
