Little Helper

I know, I know, I said I was taking a bloggin break. Really I am, but this is just too cute not to share!

I'm sitting here in what has become the multi-purpose room of the house. I'm finishing up the last of the reindeer I'm making, listening to Little Dude and GG play.


GG was having trouble at the beginning of the school year with word searches. Altho I think a lot of the blame fell on the teacher trying to rush the kids through yet another assignment. Anywho, I bought her a wordsearch book to practice with at home. By the way, it's really helped! At the beginning of the year, she was getting F's on all the word searches.


F's!!!!! This from the girl who has never brought home anything less than a B. Except handwriting, but I figure she'll be doing nothing but typing in a few years anyway. And if she takes after her dad in handwriting, heaven help her!!!


Back to the word searches.... She claimed they didn't have enough time to do them. Talking to other parents from her class, I knew that was a lot of truth in that claim. Faults with her teacher... well, that's a whole other post!!!


Anywho, she's trying to have her brother help her find words.




"Ok, Dude, look for a stick. That's the letter 'I'."

"Now, look for a circle. That's the letter 'O'."



Sometimes it's hard to see, I think because they are close in age - she's 8 and he's 4, but they are thick as theives. GG is one of the best big sisters I know of.



And we all know the closer they are, the more they fight. And I just heard my cue to step in! So much for a sweet moment!


Until next...

SO sweet.

I hope to see that between my kids. Right now, all they do is fight over toys, me, and Jdaddy. Ugh. They are 3.5 years apart. Since Buddy is only 5, maybe I'll see that loving side come out in a couple of years.

"look for the stick", that is so cute. Maybe she will be a teacher when she grows up. Bonds are formed in the strangest ways. 4 years is nothing.

As thick as thieves, what could be better than that?!

I always tell my boys that they love each other all the time. They don't necessarily LIKE each other all the time.....,
