My, how times change... when your five year old begs to hand-wash the dishes.... rather than use the dishwasher! I remember begging to have a dishwasher when we were younger and my wonderful parents smugly replying 'But, we already have three!' (Namely, three girls/slaves). Haha, parents! ;)
Never fear, my kids get their chance to groan about their own chores too - ironically, unstacking the dishwasher!
Anyway, here is my Little Miss Cinderella, industriously and contentedly washing up a bunch of dishes. Ahhh, novelty ;)
Her sweet expression captured here? Melts my heart!
Little Hands - Hard at Work
My lovely friend Velle, expert giver of the perfect and always-timely gift, recently gave Eli a rockin' construction-themed craft/crayon set for his birthday. He was pretty pleased to have his very own 'craft' and it was just perfect for him with lots of fun stuff to make and move around. We had a very sweet morning constructing, colouring (ahhh, so soothing) and playing together while Big Sister was at school.
Little Hands - Hard at Play
Enjoying pre-bed snuggles, wrestles and 'airplanes' with Daddy. All these tasks can be performed whilst gnawing on your own hands, right, Miles?
The scene below is pre- and post- neck snuffling! Love the expectant look then post-snuffle glee :)
Little Hands: Good for Teething

More highlights from the week that was...
|All settled in with her supplies near by. This girl looooves her little nest and it just got even better :)|
(My new favourite thing is checking her shelf each day - love seeing what her latest treasures are)
|Just some early morning 'silly song and dance'... par for the course around here!|
|My Little Aviator - ready to fly.|
