DADDY'S HELPER!

I just adore my son Daniel (he will be 7 in July)! He is the one who does not mind doing any "manual labor." When I ask him to get the clothes out of the dryer, he just says, "Okay!" He even likes to help me do the laundry! One time he was shouting for me to come to the bathroom to help him with something, and when I walked over there, he had the plunger in the toilet trying to unclog it! LOL! He knew exactly where it was, and he just went and got it himself and tried to just "fix it." I was like, "Awwwwwwww!!" He loves to help outside too, like sweeping, watering the grass, and pulling weeds! And just at the bbq we went to, he was helping our friend grill the burgers because he was so fascinated by the smoke and wanted to learn how to do it! Our friend told him that next time he bbq's, he's going to have Daniel help him again! This boy is all boy! He does not care about getting dirty, he has no fear when it comes to climbing (lol), and although he has the softest, sweetest voice, he is definitely not a push over! He has his boundaries for sure! Well, he just loves to learn and to be "hands on." He told me his favorite subject is Science because of the experiments he gets to do! Well, I should not have been surprised that he was all in the mix when my husband was putting my daughters dresser together (thanks to my sis in law for buying it for her). My husband said that Daniel helped alot! I wish he called me in there earlier because I could have taken more pictures!

Helping with the knobs!
He loved using the drill!

Big boy!!!

How awesome that your husband has a helper like that!

Just the other day my husband and I were watching a little guy help his dad shovel snow. He said he couldn't wait until the kids were out there with him making the job twice as difficult and ten times as enjoyable.

Julie said...

Too cool! I hope my boys will help out like that!

Laura Lee said...

I love how boys "cowboy-up" when there's work to be done! Both of my boys, ages 4 and 8, love to help dad and mom with "real" work--not just daily chores. Their voices even get deeper!! And then I have work: to keep a straight face. :D

Laura said...

I think Kyle is going to be the exact same way! That is great that he's such a great helper. Can you send him over to my house to help with laundry? LOL

Oh you've been blessed for sure! I know many kids nowadays grow out of that helpfulness much earlier on and never even get to his age, lol
