Dear 2 Year Old Helper...

Mommy is so glad that you are in your helpful phase. Although, sometimes you exhaust her with your lovely ideas of help... Sometimes it is so hard to keep up with your excitement and zeal for laundry and dishes... If you could just remember a few things, it might really help me out...

Please remember that Mommy needs to help you when you decided it is a good idea to use the fabric softener all by your self... That bottle is pretty heavy.

Also, that when you take Mommy's "Coco" off of the coffee table and throw it into the sink to "clean it", think about letting Mommy help you.... Glass flies at a pretty fast rate out of a sink when a toddler throws it as hard as he can...

If you could next time, please do not give the remote a bath...

Also, keep in mind that motorcycles do not wash so well in the washer machine... Ask Mommy next time and I will wash it in the sink for you...

And since you know how to open the doors now, if you would not mind telling me the next time you decide that it is time for Gabby to go potty out the front door.... It is a good thing she is a good dog and always comes home.... (for the record, I was washing dishes in the kitchen and never heard him open the glass door... I am going to have to get some sort of alarm for that thing)

Like I said, I am so glad that you are helpful to me and I always welcome your thoughtfulness. I love you and cannot wait for the next funny thing you do....

Love Always,
