Chess can be a very good helper. She helps clean up toys, fold wash cloths, and helps me in the kitchen from time to time.
The other day, the girls were cutting construction paper up into tiny pieces. Of course it all ended up on the floor. I was about to get the broom and clean it up, but luckily I realized it was a great opportunity to teach Chess how to sweep. She did a great job and was so proud of herself.
On another day, the dishwasher had finished running, and it was sitting open. Chess pulled up a chair, and began putting the dishes up in the cabinet all on her own. I was so impressed, of course I had her pose for a picture.
