REFLECTIONS: Little helpers…
We’ve got the Bean with us here this week, and he’s “helping” a lot. The enthusiasm a four year-old has! He falls asleep each night happily anticipating the next day’s work. Garden-work, kitchen-work – what some might call drudgery – this boy is all over. I know from experience that the helping phase passes about the same time the competence phase arrives, but I’m still enjoying it, especially on this short-term basis. Even the more so for all the helpees we have around here graciously accepting his offers (or demands: “I wanna help!”) to work with them.
