You know those pieces of wood need all the help they can get...
I used to think she was too little to help me with my projects. After all, there's not much to offer while I'm at the sewing machine with pins and needles. But when you put yourself in a new mindset, there's no limits to what you can do. I started to give her "safe" items from my sewing box, and now she feels like a big girl. As soon as Little Olive feels like she's helping, she acts quite important and stays out of mischief. As you can see from the picture below of her with my mom, she takes her little jobs seriously.

Doing things around the house has made both Ian and I feel extremely accomplished and proud of our living space. It's no wonder that Little Olive seems to be just as in-tune with her feelings of importance and responsibility. I think it's really remarkable, and super cute.
