Recently life has been busy. Very busy. Our days our filled with trying to get settled into our house, finishing up the school year, cub scouts, soccer, music and swimming. I can't seem to figure out how to keep up with the laundry and we still don't have a kitchen. Although, we do have a stove!! There are toys everywhere and the legos have literally taken over. Does anyone else struggle with these toy invasions?? It absolutely drives me crazy. I had a moment of weakness this weekend and told Jonas I'll take away all legos for a month if he can't learn to pick them up. While the family thinks that I am the "master picker upper" it is in fact NOT my job to pick up after everyone.
Jonas woke up this morning and immediately cleaned up all the legos and his room. I heard the soft slap of his feet running down the hall to share his excitement. And with an enormous grin, he asked if I could make cinnamon rolls. Warm cinnamon rolls with no icing. Now that, my friends, is my job.
