I had to get some things done in the kitchen so I brought her in with me and set her on the floor with her train that she loves to take apart and play with. I also set down an old tissue box with some fabric swatches stuffed inside. Once she was done with the train and saw the tissue box she began taking each one out. I fit around 50 swatches in there ($5 from the Walmart clearance aisle). Then to my surprise, she started putting them back in! I didn’t know she could actually put things away. Is it too early to start teaching her chores? I digress. So in that whole time I was able to make dinner and fix her a plate. It was amazing! 2 for 2!
All I know is that she sees the swing from the window and gets excited…I’m waiting for the excitement to hit her face when she’s actually in it. 2.5 for 3?
