The girlies love corn and Aly loves loves loves to shuck the stuff...whatever! So she and her Daddy set about to shuck it all clean so we could enjoy it for dinner. We did enjoy it for dinner...what was left after the girls inhaled two ears of raw corn before it ever made it to the kitchen!! They sucked it down and cleaned those cobs like pro's. It was hilarious!!
Of course they had to share with Aly's jaguar (Lucy Lu) ...
and Lili's baby doll (QinQin). I mean...how rude would that be to leave them out!!
I have started giving the girls some more responsibilities around the house...chores. They are both capable of doing, so I decided...the earlier the better!! Anyway, Aly empties the dishwasher for me in the mornings, but this morning she decided that she wanted to LOAD it as well. I started to come alongside her and show her how, but she usually gets very upset and says, "MOM....I KNOW HOW TO DO IT!!!" So I decided to let her do it, then just correct what needs correcting. Seems to be working! Anyway, she loaded it and this is what it looked like.
I don't know about you, but I am MOST impressed!!!! Not too terribly much to fix here. Aly is nothing if not determined!!!
When it comes to homeschooling, I have quickly found out that Lili WILL NOT BE LEFT OUT!!!! It would seem that fact holds true in many areas...she has started sweeping the kitchen and Living Room floors with the electric sweeper each morning for me. She has a ball and actually does a pretty good job seeing that she is still two years old (three in Dec!) She moves stuff and pics up big trash by hand and takes her time.
I am so very proud of my two little apprentices!!
