Friday's Finds | An Honest Confession

. .. . . .. . . . . .. . . . . . . .. . .

{Welcome to Friday's Finds! For those of you who are new to this blog and/or just poppin' in - Hello! and welcome. On Friday's I like to try and feature "a find" of no particular value or sentiment, no reason or rhyme and yet, exactly for all of those reasons I just mentioned.}

Today's Friday's Finds - finds me, literally booted out of my dishpan.

I hate to admit this.  I blame it on pregnancy hormones.  But, I was feeling the "inconvenience" of not getting my work done - at that precise moment-  when they simply wanted to help wash dishes. 

I resorted to a couple of hot tears.  ((seriously))

Quickly - bucked up. 
Grabbed the camera and said to myself. 
Fine!  Let's just take a few pictures of this just to show them, their unique and combined interest, in washing dishes, in about five years from now.

 : : This is one of those areas where I really struggle to teach my kids how to "help" to learn...
they are only two and three - but getting bigger and there are things that they like to do and can do well; they do help to set the table, clear the table, pick up their toys, etc.
Quite honestly, dishes is an area where I would "rather" do it myself to - get er done - more quickly and effiecently.  I know that will only bite me later in life... I know, I know.  
Oh, the things you find out about me. : :

An honest confession is good for the soul.


  1. Bevy -

    1) Your kids = super cute

    2) I HAD NO IDEA YOU WERE PREGNANT! When are you due?!?

    Congrats :)

  2. I absolutely understand...I am the same way! I am learning to delegate a bit better these days, but when my children were your children's ages I probably would have let them "do" the dishes and then when they were napping or whatever re-done them so that I knew they were clean! :) So see your not the only one! LOL!

  3. For children everything is play and that is how they learn.
    Washing dishes is a great hand and eye coordination lesson. Plus, it's a texture lesson.
    You did very well letting them tackle the dishes. I think you are a great mother!

  4. well there now. You have found me out too;)

    I most always come up with any excuse I can to shoo a little tot named sadie away from my sink.
    she finds her way up on a chair to the sink anyway.

    I'm glad that I could confess;)

    loved this post and I see your 18 weeks!!!!!
    It's going by so fast!
