Most evenings after dinner, this is what M insists on doing...watering our plants!
She gets such a kick out of "helping" us right now. It's amazing how much she watches us and then mimics our behaviors. I know I've said it before, but this is such a neat age watching her grow and learn so much!
I went to a Montessori workshop at a local school last month about understanding the toddler's brain and how it grows and develops (which was super interesting, btw!), and one of the things I learned was to give her lots of jobs and let her feel like she's helping us. We do a pretty good job at this, but I won't lie, sometimes it's easier to just do the job all by myself so I can get it done quicker and move on, but when I do stop to let her help, the smiles of accomplishment I get in return are well worth it!
How does your toddler help at home?
