Around 330pm most days, Ethan becomes bored. Bored with home toys and books, and often frustrated with life. Sometimes we’ll walk the zoo for an hour, or maybe visit the library. But usually this is the time we tackle cleaning. And E loves to help sweep, wipe down the counters, and load/unload the dishwasher. The first time he did this, I took a moment to pause. Because he changed from a baby to a little person when it was clear he understood how to help. It was a very cool moment.
