I have a little helper,
She’s a helpful little Miss.
A very good daughter,
And, at times, an even better sis’.

She helps me with the vacuuming,
And putting toys away.
Getting things tidy,
To play with them another day.

She helps me sweep the kitchen floor,
And even gives William his dinner.
If I can keep this going,
I’m onto a real little winner.

I’m not advocating child labour.
Children shouldn’t work for free.
So I feel very fortunate,
Olivia wants to do all this for me.

Now, I’m not saying Olivia’s perfect.
She can be a total fright.
But when she’s feeling helpful,
She’s an absolute delight.

How about you? Do your children like to help around the house?
