Yesterday Joseph helped Sarah with the dishes.
(That’s not the success story, but it is nice, isn’t it? \:\) )
But when the dishes were gone, Joseph did not want to get down from the sink and threw a fit. So he was assigned to sit in a chair for awhile until he could change his attitude.
Sarah was finishing up in the kitchen when she heard a meek little voice say "Mind?"
"You want to mind me now?"
Joseph said yes in his own way (which is a "heh heh heh" giggle of delight that he has gotten his message across and is enthusiastic that he’s about to have his request granted — in this case, his request was to mind :) ). Sarah had him do a few more things and he obeyed.
For the first time, our little boy specifically said he wanted to mind his Mommy! :)
