Lauren Kate loves to be a helper, and she's to the age where her help is actually helpful. Yes!!
Putting away silverware is a task that is helpful, keeps her busy while I accomplish another task, and - bonus - gives her great sorting practice.
She also takes responsibility for getting cups of water for herself and Collin at mealtimes. Sometimes she has to reach in pretty far to find the just-right cups...
Lauren is also really good at hanging up her own clothes. After she gets everything on hangers and into the closet, then she has to spread her arms wide to grab every item and squish the entire contents of her closet together into the middle. Funny habit!
