Call the ILO!

Do you SEE why he has us wrapped around his little finger?  I mean, come on, could you resist that face?



But, that's not to say I'm a complete softie.  I started teaching Evan some chores at an early age.  Perhaps you'll remember the hamper lesson?  Now we've moved on to bigger - and louder - things.  Evan's newest obsession is the vacuum.  Because he insists on 'helping,' last week I had to schlep him around on my back while vacuuming.  Carrying a nearly 30-pound rucksack on one's back while cleaning floors?  Fun times.  If anyone knows where I can find a working kid-sized vacuum, please tell me. Why not put that motivation to good use?  The irony that I'm working on a Human Rights Policy at work while also trying to institute child labor in my own household is not totally lost on me.  Here's my excuse:

I don't know about a working Evan-sized vacuum, but surely we can arrange something along the lines of a dust mop? Maybe play some loud music and he won't notice it doesn't make noise. Ha!

Oh I am so in love with the little guy! I really do need to come visit! When you teach him how to do dishes send him over. :)

Funny you should suggest that, Heidi. Yesterday, Evan insisted on using the broom to help sweep the sidewalks. This occupied him for a good 30 minutes.

And yes, Alicia, come visit anytime!!!
