Sometimes you need a little helper
With our fourth baby things were different. We had moved to a two story house, so she could not be in my sight or reach. Most of my work is in the kitchen which is not opened for viewing into other rooms, so if Little Pumpkin was in any other room I couldn't see her. So I made a pouch and carried her with me. She has always been a part of everything I do. When I'm cooking, she wants to smell the spices. Now that she is almost two she will drag a chair over to help with washing dishes splashing water everywhere which should give me incentive to mop the floor more I guess (sigh). She wants to knead the bread. While the other kids are going about their day busily playing their games, Little Pumpkin wants to be right at my side being my helper. Yes, sometimes it is more work, but it is also more fun to be together.
