Child labor

January 13, 2012

My new favorite thing to do in a snow storm is watch my children shovel.  They were doing a bang-up job with their croquet mallets but I was afraid they might be out there until March, so I convinced them to switch to a shovel and broom.  (Note to self:  buy another kid shovel.)

They are in that golden window when they are old enough to almost make a noticable dent in the snow and yet also be thrilled to help.  I assume that window will be open for roughly 3 days, so I capitalized on their pride in their independant snow-clearing and let them go nuts while I stayed toasty warm inside.



The best part is I can pay them in hot chocolate.  Everyone wins.
