Mallory had to help me out all day yesterday due to my back. She helped me unload the dishwasher, reload the dishwasher, get clothes out of the dryer and put in a basket. On top of all of that, she also helped me by picking the baby goats (kids) and put them in the bucket to be weighed. She was a tremendous help to me! I couldn't have done it without her.
Since Mallory went above and beyond her few "chores" I decided she deserved to be compensated. I told her she had the option of a prize that I had stored in my closet (it was a future birthday or Christmas present) OR she could get money. She chose the prize in the closet, not knowing what it would be. I don't think it was too shabby though. It made one little girl quite happy. See for yourself.

By the way, my back is getting much better. Thank goodness for anti-inflammatories. When completely well, I will be working on some back strengthening exercises. I definitely don't want this to happen again!
