Helping in the garden
After thinking about it for a few seconds, he gently plucked a single leaf out of the oasis and toddled around to the compost bin, lifted the lid himself and threw the leaf in. All this time he looked over to Mummy to see if this was okay. Once it was clear that he was being very helpful, he happily collected more parts of the floral collection to throw away.
If you're wondering what's in his left hand, that's one of his "pokin' sticks" that he uses in the back yard to, well, poke at things for no particular reason, as all boys enjoy doing (I know I sure did when I was a wee one...still do, really).
We are amazed almost daily at just how much Elijah loves to help.
