How I got suckered by a 3 year old girl

help It’s women's day. Mom has gone out to a ladies meeting. I’m left with the kids. Great. Time to spend some quality time together.

But alas there was deceit on the horizon.

My 3 year old girl was helping me wash. She had gotten some soap and a scrunchie and proceeded to wash my arm. In her cute voice, with twinkling eye she looked at me and said; “I’m your big helper”.
With a beaming smile I replied, “Yes”.
”Because you’re my favourite dad and I like to help you”, she said.

Without realising she was reeling me in for a whopper.

She then turned to me and said, “Dad, you’re my best helper”. Naturally I was flattered and once again beaming from ear to ear I answered a straight, “Yes”

Then she dropped the bomb, “You can help tidy my room up”

Wow I was suckered into that, and fell hook, line and sinker.

Be careful what you agree too

As I came to terms with what I had just agreed too, I started to think how often I did this.

That is, agreeing to do almost everything for everyone. You see, I have a weakness. I can’t say no. As a result I often get myself into heaps of trouble.

How many times have I agreed to help other bloggers and have taken on too much

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for helping my fellow blogger as and when I can. But the lesson has to be learned, only agree to help if you know you have the time to do so.

Otherwise, agreeing to help and not being able to fulfil your promise is worse than saying no.
