After feeling like a "mean Mom" because of my last post, I feel I better correct part of it.
This little one...my baby girl who is almost seven years old...has been a TERRIFIC help today. She has tried to keep the babies at bay (but even I can't do that, so I don't expect her to). She has vacuumed up the living room twice and swept the kitchen once...all just today.
She hasn't been involved in the fighting at all and has tried to resolve a few of the fights without my help. I must be doing something right, if I can raise a sweet girl like this. I'll just have to hope and pray that it will leak on to the others, as they continue to grow.
