    There is nothing sweeter than a little helper! (As I type this, my toddler just went and grabbed a cloth and wiped his baby sister’s mouth… love!)

    Great photos! So happy to see so many helpers love helping in the kitchen. Leads to great eating habits and awareness about what’s in their food :)

    Great shots! I love seeing our little ones learn and grow, as they desire more and more to be a part of what the bigger people around them are doing. It’s been a lesson for me in finding the fun and beauty in the mundane activities of daily living (laundry, dishes, etc.) as I witness my child’s sheer joy and pride in participating in these chores together with me.

    I love all these little helpers, and so many kitchen helpers too! These little ones are going to grow up knowing that food doesn’t come from a drive-thru window – it comes from the kitchens of our loving homes.
