Our three year old is becoming more independent each day. But sometimes, we have to let him know that he's still too young to help us with something and we tell him that he needs to grow bigger first and then he can help.
Jake likes to have us build a "house" out of the couch cushions, then destroy it, and build it again. And again.
The other day, Mike built up the house, which Jake immediately jumped on and destroyed. Jake asked for Daddy to build it again, to which Daddy said that Jake could build it himself.
Jake responded that he was still too little and he has to grow bigger first.
