My sweet dd is 8y.o. now and everyday I can look at her and see how much she is growing and changing. This morning she fixed herself an omelet, oh my how she is growing! I am so thankful that God is reminding me to enjoy these moments and to take time to really ponder how my children are growing. I have always known in my heart that I want to train my dd to be a keeper at home and to know the ways of taking care of a household and family, but it's nice to see that I actually have trained her in at least some areas. It is important to me that all of my children have at least a basic knowledge of how to take care of a home and keep it running, even my boys. So, all of my children have daily chores and my two oldest boys have been cooking basic dishes for some time now. Today is the first day my dd actually fixed herself eggs from start to finish without any help. Her brother caught on quick and as I type, she is fixing him an omelet! Ds2 loves to experiment with dishes and has his "own sandwich" that he loves to make. Sometimes it is so much faster and easier just to cook by ourselves and not include our children, but the benefits of taking the time to teach them and share the experience with them is priceless.
She is such a little helper girl, after fixing ds1 his omelet, she offered to fix one for her other brothers as well. I pray she keeps her helper/servant attitude. It is a wonderful quality to have.
