Earlier tonight, I told my ten year old to go ahead and take his three year old little brother upstairs, while I loaded the dishwasher (my husband has to get up at 2am for work, so he was already sound asleep during all of this). After I finished my chores (it took me about 10 mins), I come upstairs to find my big boy had already given the little one a bath! I was flabbergasted; he has never done that before! This is the same kid that got in trouble just this morning for not doing his chores! When I asked him why he did that, all he said was "I knew he needed a bath, so I gave him one." Um, thanks? Needless to say, it was a weird yet pleasant surprise. I don't even know who this kid is right now!
Between this and finding out my little one has been (accidentally) ordering books on Amazon*, I feel like I'm in the mommy twilight zone!
What did your kid do to surprise you?
*I just got Mockingjay. Fifty Shades Darker is on its way. WTF.
