Day #4: Lend a Hand

Challenge #4: I’m all about teaching responsibility. My kids (well, not the baby, but the older two) are in charge of cleaning their own rooms, feeding the dog, hanging their backpacks up, the works. But today I challenge you to show someone you care about them by helping them do something that’s on their to-do list. So, go into your kids room and say “Let me help you with this” or empty the dishwasher even though it’s your hubby’s turn.

Leave a comment to tell me you did it and you could win a set of Maama Cards!


  1. Helped my hubby by taking the trash out :)

  2. When my son was done playing with his train set, I remembered your post and offered to help him put it all away. He seemed to enjoy the task more…and he sure liked giving me instructions on where it all went. :)

  3. Do you post updates to twitter?

  4. I helped my oldest daughter pick up silly string after she sprayed the entire can on her sister. It really isn’t fun to clean up.

  5. Fine advice! I have already been looking for something similar to this for a while now. Cheers!

  6. I certainly knew about most of this, but however, I still believed it had been valuable. Beautiful work!

  7. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing issues with your website. It seems like some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Appreciate it

  10. I basically knew about a majority of this, but never the less, I still assumed it had been useful. Sweet post!
