The other day we had a little friend visiting at our house. Haven appointed herself the tour guide and she walked around the house pointing out the various highlights ("this is our kitchen, this is the playroom, these are my shoes, these are my other shoes, these are my play shoes..."). When she got to the mop, which was conveniently propped up against a wall in the kitchen awaiting the next spill, she said, "This is for cleaning. It's my mom's. She does the chores around the house." My first instinct was to be offended. What does she see me as? The maid? And then I thought how amazing it is that my 3 year-old recognizes that I do stuff around the house. Thanks, Haven!
