Mommy's Helper

Yesterday I took Bennett grocery shopping with me and luckily we were able to use a shopping cart with a car attached to it, so he was entertained and happy throughout my entire trip.  When we got home I needed to keep him occupied so I could unload everything so I asked him to help me bring in the paper towels and he quickly ran over!  It was so cute as soon as I said "can you help me" he was all about it. He picked up the paper towels (which was a large pack) and it took him a good 5 minutes to get them from the garage door to the kitchen.  In the meantime I was able to get my groceries put away.  He made a few manly grunts while he tried to pick them up and then he tried to climb on top of them so he enjoyed "helping" mommy out!

Bringing them to mommy

Today I tried this again.  I forgot a few things at the store yesterday so I had to run back out this afternoon and when we got home Bennett did not want to come inside he wanted to go outside to play.  In order to  keep a tantrum from happening I asked him if he would help mommy and he ran right over!  I gave him some cheese to carry in and he gladly handled it for me.  Then I asked him to throw away some trash and he did!  I am loving this!!!  My child is enjoying himself while helping me and I can get a few things done...win win in my book!
