The Help

"Can I help?"  It's Zoe's favorite question.  A lot of times her form of "help" generally makes more work for me.  Like, when she helps by getting the milk out of the fridge and flailes it around while walking to the kitchen table...then hits the table and milk flies through the kitchen.

But recently, when it comes to the triplets, she really is trying to help.  She quickly jumps into the baby's toy room when one of them cries.  She plays with them.  She even changes their diapers on occasion.
Now she has a new request:

The thing is, though, she's pretty good at it.  When Zoe is feeding the babies, I'm freed up to do other things like, make dinner for the rest of us!  It's actually a win/win.

(My favorite thing about these pictures is Zoe's mouth.  Is she trying to show them how wide they need to open up?)

You are such a good mama to let your daughter help! I know that it can be frustrating, but it's so good for her!

If you ever need a break - send her to CT - I could use her to show my son how hepful he really could be! LOL
Way to go Zoe!!

So cute! Kaitlyn is actually a huge help with the girls (when she wants to be) - when she gets in the playing mood the girls are all over her and they are all so happy about it.

If they open up for her I'd take it! Tell her when she's done you can send her south to feed my babies :) They don't eat!!
