Mommy, Can I Help You?

I'm tired from a long day. 
I'm trying to wash a very full sinkload 
of pots, pans, mixing bowls, cookie sheets.

"Mommy, can I help you?"
She nudges against me.  I sigh.
There is no more room at the sink.
I don't want a wet mess. 

Then I come to my senses.
What am I doing?  
Here I have a willing helper!
And a lot of work to do!

"Here, Melody, how about drying for me?" 

Melody dried a dozen things,
handed one by one, mother to daughter.
She even put them away without being asked!
Then she said, "That be a good job!"
Yes, it was!
"Thank you, sweetheart!"

Come, weary moms....
Let your children help you.
Work together side by side!

Keep a happy heart
and it might rub off on your kids.

After all, Melody's happy heart
sure rubbed off on me!

"That be a good job!"
