About That Work Ethic . . .


We like to train ‘em up when they’re young here at our house.  Ollie is already throwing all of his own diapers away and using a Swiffer duster, a broom and the vacuum on a regular basis.  I can hardly stand it when he says “Bacuum!”. It’s seriously endearing.

I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised then, when we headed out in the lovely eighty degree weather a few days ago to spruce up a new push bike I found for Ollie at a tag sale and the little fellow would not be satisfied until he had a sponge of his own so he could help with the work.

I had to snap a few photos because his baby work ethic was so darned strong.  And because he was killing me with his little cargo hat and new Converse All Stars.


Now if only I could get the older three to pitch in this easily!

Free printable tomorrow!  And don’t forget tomorrow is the last day to enter the April Giveaway.  You won’t want to miss it my friends.  It’s all sorts of purty. Check it out here.

These pictures are so sweet! Converse on little feet are so adorable.
What about working, at my house has always been the same. Since my sister and I were really young our parents made us help with all kind of chores. I think this is the way children learn to integrate work and helping at home.

Have a great day, Dagronfly!

Those little converse sneakers are totally photo-worthy and so is that squeeky clean worker boy.

In 80 degree weather, I would be out there with soapy water too!

I could use a good worker/helper big or small, send that converse wearing cutie to my house ASAP.

I love the use of the pink hospital barf tub. I have a few of those leftover from my many hospital stays and they make great little tubs for soaking the feet when giving myself a pedicure and also plastic grocery bags are a perfect liner for when you actually do use it as a barf bucket at home : )
