Helpfulness vs 'helpfulness'

SP loves to be 'helpful', as I think most little kids do. But 'helpfulness' is not always helpful to whoever he's helping. 

Recently though, there are elements of his 'helpfulness' that are actually helpful! In the last few days, he's learnt to pull the dry socks & jocks off multi-peg-hanger that hangs off the clothes line and put them in the basket. Keeps him busy while I bring the other things in, and it's a whole category of clothing that I don't have to do myself anymore!

There are some slight issues when he 'helpfully' pulls off the wet things as I'm putting them out, but we're working on that :)

Long live helpfulness!
