Helping hand

Recently Susannah (3 1/2) and Noah (2 next month) moved into the attic bedroom. I'd promised that we would decorate it for them before Christmas, and last weekend we did. We thought Susie was old enough to enjoy helping, and sold the idea to her: I'd 'help' by doing all the cutting-in with a brush, and then she could do 'most of' the painting with a roller. Obviously, I held onto the roller too...

As we were painting together I told Susie, "You're a great helper!" She replied, straight off, "No, Daddy. I'm a great painter. You're a great helper."
