I was sick with the flu all week. In bed, doing nothing, down for the count. My four-year-old daughter went to work with her dad, helped around the house, and took the disruption in her routine like a real trooper. I'm so proud of her. I was thinking maybe she deserves a reward of som kind, but not sure what. Dad says no, she did good, she was part of the family and pitched in, that's what families do.
So what do you all think?

I think a reward is in order. It doesn't have to be a toy, maybe a trip to get ice cream or maybe visit a new playground, etc.

Reward. However a reward could be anything, praise, a hug, even a small toy. I think it's important to let them know you notice the great things they do. Awesome kid.

Aww what a little sweetheart! Yes, it's what we expect from them, but it also has to be noticed & appreciation given! I like the ideas others suggested. It doesn't have to be some grand, expensive gesture. It can be as simple as a girls' day, when mom is feeling up to it. You can do each others' hair & nails, play games, whatever. Just letting her know she did good will do. :)
