My Little Helper
Recently B has become quite the little helper in the house. He loves to sweep (mainly push the broom in the direction of his brother) he has attempted to help vacuum a few times and is always eager to help me put away the dishes, although that one is a little scary I have to admit.
It really got me to thinking just how much these little ones are taking in and mimicking their everyday life. Sure I think that mimicking my cleaning is cute and a good lesson for him but what else I am I teaching him by my everyday behavior? Am I setting a good example of what it is like to be kind, and caring towards others, to love God and and make Him part of your everyday life and have a relationship with Him? Well I have to admit, not always.
I sometimes have little patience with people and can sometimes be critical (ouch, I hate admitting this) and as far as my relationship with God although it's there I can't say I set an example to seek Him first in all I do. This is a great reminder of what I need to shift in my life to make these things come more effortlessly to me in order to easily show my boys what to "mimic" in their lives.
