She Comes in Handy …

in Family, General

Dear Georgie,

Occassionally, in between ripping the cushions off the couch, filling the sinks with toilet paper and water, taking every piece of clothing you own out of your drawers … you come in handy!

    Hope this post was happier for you than the last. I did find it humorous how you are the type to call people out on things.. Glad it wasnt me :) – Although, you should not have to take crap like that, especially when there are people like me that can prove you are great and prove those folks wrong. So, after all the people vouching for you and standing up for you, I hope this was a happier typing session!!

    I love Georgia’s outfit and her hair & complexion makes me jealous. My girls are gorgeous, but both have dirty blonde/light brown hair..neither got the white hair from me when I was little.. It was like Georgia’s – :(

    Take care sweetie! I am glad you are posting again..we missed yall!

    That color is stunning on her!

  • Auntie Gayle December 12, 2007, 1:05 am

    Gorgeous Georgia! Love that dress.

  • mama k December 12, 2007, 4:30 am

    And she’s just too cute too! Love that outfit. :)

  • Amanda December 12, 2007, 4:34 am

    Have to agree here with everyone else! That color truly is stunning on her. Really brings out her lips. Gorgeous girl. Momma you sure do good work :)

  • Deb December 12, 2007, 7:53 am

    she sounds like my kids…*sigh*
    she reminds me of a doll with her colouring. gorgeous!

    My son is three and is starting to come in handy. He likes to throw his baby sister’s diapers in the trash, put his dirty clothes in the laundry basket, and he actually likes doing dishes. I’m lucky that he’s a good helper because Marley’s only 4 months old.

    I always say, who needs Montessori when I have a house that needs organizing! Put them to work early and often!

  • Jamie December 12, 2007, 9:03 am

    Yup. Early to work is a good thing! I had kids so that eventually i would never have to work again!

    It’s not working out so well thus far tho…

  • Keara December 12, 2007, 9:14 am

    So sweet! I love that dress! It is beautiful! Wish I had a girl!

    My son loves to help with the laundy and will come a runnin when I say I am taking the trash out. Mommy’s little helper.

  • Lisa December 12, 2007, 9:31 am

    It is fun when they help. Although laundry takes me three times longer with two two year olds helping:)

  • Susy-Q December 12, 2007, 11:47 am

    Your daughter looks smashing n that dress, although to be honest, she would probably look cute wearing a paper bag!

    I already have my 16-month old son helping me with the laundry. he loves to take the clothes out of the washer (front loader) and put it in the dryer. I don’t expect that kind of enthusiasm when he will be 16!

  • Naomi December 12, 2007, 12:08 pm

    Georgia looks so sweet. A little overdressed for chores, but I would be, too, if my mom owned a cool boutique…

    I can’t wait until Roo can put away her own laundry. That will be a milestone!

  • Heather December 12, 2007, 12:17 pm

    She looks darling…putting the dishes away in dress up clothes reminds me of doing the laundry in my heels… :)

  • Colleen December 12, 2007, 1:40 pm

    I love catching pictures of Zoe doing housework. haha.

    The dress is beautiful. Very festive.

  • bree December 12, 2007, 2:03 pm

    She is beautiful! what a great helper! GOtta start them early :) hehe

  • Michelle December 12, 2007, 2:34 pm

    My daughter went through a stage were she insisted on being called Cinderella. So we got her a mop and some rags and got her to clean just like Cinderella. The novelty wore off fast but it was cute.

  • Happy Geek December 12, 2007, 5:17 pm

    Sooo cute. That dress is enough to make me want a girl! But then I think about 13 year old girls and I am OK again.

  • Jenny M December 12, 2007, 5:26 pm

    What a good helper=). And so adorable=). Start em while they’re young

  • Amy December 12, 2007, 6:06 pm

    Isn’t it great when they find a fun task and it’s a helpful one at that!

  • Andrea December 12, 2007, 7:39 pm

    hehe…yes, I know how you feel! My 16 month old son just figured out what CLEANING UP means…and he does it now with no fuss or complaints – I absolutely LOVE IT!!!

  • Deanne S. December 12, 2007, 10:44 pm

    Yeah, if only the novelty wouldn’t wear off!!

  • Laura December 13, 2007, 11:51 am

    Yes, WHAT is with ripping the couch cushions off?? I am ready to pull my hair out with this… nobody wants cushions on the couch in my house.

    I am still waiting for my 3 year old to become useful (lol), but my 2 year old girl just LOVES to help. In fact, if she is fussy or cranky, we make up a task for her to do and she cheers right up!

  • Jaime Stephens December 13, 2007, 2:45 pm

    I agree.. what is with ripping the cushions off the couch? It drives me crazy. My 3 year old also has the occasional moment where she helps out around the house. My goodness though they’re few and few between!

  • Carissa December 13, 2007, 3:11 pm

    i can’t even get my 8 year old to do her chores everyday!

  • leslie December 13, 2007, 3:33 pm
