Kelly from Pass the Torch, challanges us to catch kids doing something good.Have I caught any of my kids being good?? My daughter gave me a fine example of something that just made my weekend! Teenagers: I've Found Will Surprise you When you least expect it! I've turned my back and my oldest Marissa,is 12 going on 20 Real Fast! Or is it 13 Going on 30! I sometimes get the I'm annoyed at my Mother Look. She's helping me now with the laundry and dishes. She empties the dishwasher for me. This past weekend my husband and I went on one of our many trips to Home Depot. He asked her to help me with loading the dishwasher. She didn't give him a hard time. She gathers her clothes together and sets them in the wash. I ran to the store and asked her to put some clothes in the wash for me, and if she knew how to start the machine. She gave me THE LOOK! She informed me,"Of Course she knew how to start the wash, and that Did I not think she was smart enough!" With a smile on her face, that she wasn't going to give me a hard time about helping me out, which she loves to do, being as she's growing up so fast. I just let her know how much I appreciated her hard work she allready does at school, and for what she does to help me around the house. She is definetly my Right Hand Daughter!

It's so nice when they're being helpful angels.

Another excellent example for Pass the Torch Tuesday. I know exactly the look you're talking about, too. And I get it from a nine-year-old;)

Good for you to catch your daughter being so very good.

They do grow so fast don't they? And it's so nice when they start doing "big kid" things!

One day you just get to a point where your kids are helping YOU instead of YOU doing everything for them. And it's so subtle, and often, you don't even realize it until you look for it. A nice post about seeing just what I'm talking about :).
