    This is great for the kids. I think it makes them feel proud to be more independent and to help mommy. Plus, it's not a drag for them yet.
    Great idea, mommacita.

    I think having kids help ultimately shows them that they are an important part of the family unit. That the machine can't run properly without their contributions. And, it makes them better grown-ups too ;-)

    Doh! Ask for help you say? That's probably better than me NOT getting it all done and then husband not having any clean underwear or the kids not having any milk because I didn't shop (yet) and then me responding with "I'm a bad wife and mother" remarks to make them feeling guilty about not helping me. When all I really had to do was? (duly noted)

    Congratulations on your destressification. ;)

    great job turning it around to something positive! I'm really impressed with your attitude in the midst of some big stressors.

    Hi there, this is a great post and I appreciate you letting me know about it on my flickr page. Asking for help is definitely important and something I struggle with. I often expect myself to be superwoman or She-ra as I like to say. It's good to remind myself, so thank you for that.
