Of course, the boys are getting older, which means things are getting a bit easier. They want to help out while grocery shopping, not run around the store like monkey's chasing each other, like they used to. Perhaps the incentive of getting to keep the quarter in the cart after they help out is part of it, but hopefully also the fact that they are starting to grow up. My 9 year old is clearly getting closer to the pre-teen stage then the school-age stage. He wants to listen to 'dance music' in his room on the radio, he rolls his eyes if I have to talk to him about his behavior, all the while still playing lego and having light saber battles. He's tall too- his head reaches my chin. Yes, he's going to be as tall as me soon. Yikes.
