For PTT, Kelly started,you catch a kid being good, about the little things we witness everyday, that make us proud.

After Dinner, I have Josh and Marissa help empty out the dishwasher, so I can load it. When here comes Katelyn, chiming in she wants to help too. My son is always trying to get out of putting the dishes away, so I thought he'd pass it all off for Katelyn to do . I was genuinely surprised, that he was showing her how to sort the silver ware, and to have her pass the plastic bowls and cups to him for him to put them away. I would have never expected him to help her, in explaining to her what to do and where something goes (that task usually belongs to me). To be honest, I didn't think he had the patience to show her. He WAS getting a little impatient at trying to tell her where the silver ware goes. She was just tossing them all together in the drawer, but you could tell they were both having fun together helping each other.

You can read more Pass the Torch Stories Here. Here's one of my own favorite PTT stories "Patience".
