    We (my children and I) were running some errands yesterday and while driving into town, we passed a large building (a place of business) that was being renovated. I glanced at it and thought nothing about it. Then my 4 year-old daughter shouts out all wide-eyed, "Mommy! Look at that chicken coop!" [​IMG]

    I now know, that my sweet little daughter has definitely been started out on the right foot. [​IMG]

    Gee, she knows coops and chickens, and probably bakes bread, too. That's GREAT! Good on you, Mom! [​IMG] What a smart little girl you have there!

    Quote:Believe it or not, she stands on a chair right beside me while I bake bread! She helps add the ingredients, roll it out, and everything. [​IMG]

    When my sons were young they like to help me. It would have been much faster to have done it without their help but I would have missed out on a wonderful experience. They are now in their forties but still reminiscence about helping Dad. My oldest is the only one with a child and he has her help him with many things. It not only builds memories, it creates skill and also build character. Keep having her help.

    That is funny. I drive by places all the time and see little buildings and think to myself. Humm? That would make a cute little chicken coop. Chickens on the brain. [​IMG]
