Child Labor

Putting the critters to bed.

Washing the same cereal bowl 500 times.

With the bad economy, I’m finding it’s best that I make sure the girls brush up on their marketable skills. Today Miss A was a fine caretaker to my mom, selecting a wonderful can of tomatoes and okra from our pantry as a get well gift. Nothing says “Speedy Recovery” like canned goods.

Miss A’s French braids are courtesy of one of her daycare teachers since I was not born with the hair stylist gene. If you ever want to score a free hairstyle like this, just have your husband drop your kid off at daycare with a nasty tangle!

Psssttttt…don’t forget to enter the giveaway for chocolate dipped strawberries and the Johnson’s baby gift basket over at Savvy Housewife, my review blog. The deadline to comment is midnight tonight.

    Kids just LOVE to wash dishes don’t they? If only they could actually get them clean…I’d let them do it all the time!

    But then they probably wouldn’t find it much fun.

    LOL, I can’t braid either!! My eldest daughter french braids her own hair (which astounds me to be honest)

    I remember the days when the hubby used to drop off the oldest girl and she would have crazy hair only to come home with pretty hair in the afternoon. It was great…oh how I miss those days….

    LOL. My husband dropped off my daughter at daycare after she had taken her pig tails out. He handed the rubber bands to the teacher and her hair never looked better.

    And I loved washing the dishes as a child (no dishwasher) I and still do. We don’t even use our dishwasher.

    Coma Girls last blog post..Oh Happy Day!
