The Three Dreaded Words: Can I help?

It's the holiday season and we are all so busy, busy, busy.  All this activity looks so inviting to our special little "helpers" but beware of the dreaded three words.

Allow me to translate: Can I help?

Can I spill it?
Can I smear it?
Can I break it?
Can I sneeze on it?
Can I drop it?
Can I waste it?
Can I squish it?
Can I stick my finger in it, stick my finger in my mouth, and then stick my finger in it again?
Can I do half of it and then walk away?
Can I put it somewhere else?
Can I put it somewhere else and forget where I put it?
Can I just get in your way?
Can I just touch it a lot and then walk away?

I love my littles.  I love teaching them and sharing moments and all that stuff.

So why, oh why, do these three little words make me cringe?

Mamas, what have I forgot?  Please add to my list.

  1. Can I lick it? Can I try it and then say it's gross? Can I get bored right away after making you get all the stuff out and making a mess? And so on.
