Stories, training, and the good times that follow this Ironman Triathlete.
The only thing wrong with this picture is that the mom is sitting outside in the cold. I would be on the living room couch with a cup of hot chocolate.
That is why I had 3 of them.
put 'em to work early... put 'em to work often...
...I don't see the joke. That's a completely normal picture. I thought this was supposed to be funny!;)Oh, just so you know, if you have a girl, you'll still be doing all the work...and more.
You are either very deluded, very optimistic, or very, very patient. To say nothing of persuasive.
True story--my 3 year old's FAVORITE THING TO DO is to "play shovel" and shovel with Matt. It's hilarious. I am documenting it thoroughly to remind him of this in about 7-10 years. ha ha!
I thought the real reason was tax deductions
Good luck with that! I thought I would have instant labor with my son and all he has done was add more work!
ha, it doesn't quite work that way. everything they do, you pretty much have to redo (without them seeing of course) - at least for awhile. but they do feel good about doing it themselves, so that's a bonus. :)
haha, that's pretty awesome! Congrats!
They could have at least given her a bigger shovel
Momo is right. Kids do a craptastic job on chores but they feel so proud of what they have done. Is it always worth the $5 or $10 bucks you bribe them with? No. But hey, right now as I listen to the spin cycle of the washing machine, I am not washing someone's sheets and putting them back on the bed and that is priceless.
It'll be a while..My oldest is 11 ( a daughter) and oldest son is 9...I still do all the snow shoveling :(
