Workin' At The Car Wash

What do you think? She could at least do this as a summer job, right?

I promise there was no child slavery involved in this activity. There was barely any child labor! She wouldn't leave me alone until I let her "help." Now my car has more dirty spots left than when we began but we had fun doing it.

I also want you to know that we started our afternoon of errands with a trip to her favorite park. I took her ball along because I say a father and son the other day kicking a ball and realized that it never dawned on me that we could and should be doing the same. She surprised me at how good she is at kicking even while she was on the run!

Of course she did have to pick a "flower" along the way and we ended up at the swings and slides but I may have a soccer player in the making. Of course I've never played a day in my life so what do I know?!?

gosh--she is just about the most adorable girl I have ever seen. I can feel happiness reading your post so I can't even imagine how happy it must be to live with her. You are one lucky Mommy.

Start the chores now while it is fun because by the time she gets 16 it will be like pulling teeth.

Kobe already wants to help me do everything. Kylie doesn't want to help me do anything:)

Could she be any cuter!!! Someone pointed me to your blog. I am just starting my switch from China LID 4/29/06 to Kaz and am looking for advice ... could you possibly email me at to discuss pros and cons ... agencies etc. ?
