Parents look forward to important milestones. We dream of the night our little one will sleep more than four hours in a stretch. We hope for the day that they'll take their first steps or say their first word. But I recently realized that there is a very important event that the baby book people neglected to add a slot for when they printed the "milestone" pages in Natalie's baby book. Case in point...

The day she learned to vacuum.

Growing up, I sometimes griped that my parents *must* have had us three kids so that we'd be around to dust and vacuum. As a grown adult with children of my own, I realize now that this definitely probably wasn't the case, but boy is it a joyful thing to watch your child rev up the engine to the Hoover and take a spin around the kitchen, laying waste to clumps of dog hair and crumbs. 

Totally not the reason why I had kids....but certainly a nice perk, no?

Which household chore do you have your kids help out with?

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
