That is just the sweetest thing I've ever heard. Wish my kids were like that. My husband moved away for his job when I was 6 months pregnant with my 5th. He told the kids they needed to behave and help me while he was gone. They did the exact opposite and made my life hell for the 3 months he was gone (until the birth of the baby). Only my 7yo helped me in the least. I don't know what I would have done without her the last month.
I would just tell him that you appreciate how much he is helping but he doesn't have to do everything. Let him pick 1 or 2 chores he WANTS to do for you and then tell him you'll do the rest. My 7yo surprises me by WANTING to do more for me. She insists I go rest and she will finish cleaning the kitchen. She likes to do it (she's just so sweet).

Sounds like you have an amazing little boy! Maybe tell him that he doesn't have to do everything, but that he can be your little helper with some things. Little ones like to help out with little things around the house anyways....makes them feel like "big kids". Good luck!
PS.....Tell your DH "Thank You" for me, for what he does for our country.
