Do your kids like to help you with things?

My kids are all under the age of 4 & love to help me with everything. I think it is so sweet & cute. Sometimes they will fight over who gets to do what & they are such great little helpers.

  • My two younger kids love to help out and fight over who gets to do what. The older two, though, are not at all interested in helping unless I make them. lol
