Helper & Hurricane

Hayden is my helper. He is also truly a "hurricane." Cleaning is one of my most frustrating things right now. I am typically a very organized and spotless woman; much of these traits changed after giving birth to my fabulous little man. I still try to maintain a clean house, but there are Hayden handprints, well, e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e! We live in a house filled with windows! And every one of them has a toddler print on it, even though I just cleaned them all! Oh, well. I wouldn't change it!

One of the things I love most about Hayden is his sensitive heart and helping nature. He l.o.v.e.s to help Mommy clean out the dishwasher. We include plenty of praise, too. Hayden will gladly throw trash in the trash can and put dirty clothes in the hamper. Toys are a matter we're working on! Some days he happily picks up his toys; most days? It's like pulling teeth.

I don't know what else to say about this boy except that he has my heart. Oh sure...we're hitting the 2 year mark and feeling it. But I wouldn't trade being a mommy for anything!
