Love This.

This summer I have been on somewhat of a mission, working on arranging our household environment in such a way that my daughters are more able to do things without help: transferring milk from the giant gallon jug into a miniature pitcher so they can fill their own cups from the fridge for breakfast each morning, moving the cat food to a low shelf so they can feed the cat themselves rather than having to wait for a grown-up to get the canister down from the high cupboard, filling a jar with pre-packaged and approved snacks so they can grab one for their swim bags at pool time.

These may seem like small things, but the difference they make in the life of a stay-at-home mom is enormous when all added up, because each is one less thing I have to do myself. These are small examples of the idea below; but they are something, they matter, and they are the seeds planted now that set the stage for future expectations.
