This summer I’ve been trying to make sure Ayla does her share of housework. Her help is free labor, right? In all honesty, while it’s great to have her help with the chores or responsibilities of living in a home, I am just trying to teach her to be responsible for her things and help take care of what we have. I pray that Riley and I will raise her to be an independent person. To be independent you have to be able to do things for yourself. Mopping the floor is one of those things.
