Put Your Toddler to Work

21 Mar
No one has raked leaves this fashionably in the history of raking leaves.

Raking leaves in style.

That’s right, you heard me. Put your toddler to work.

They’re always so bored with their buckets full of fancy toys, right? And they love chores. Why? Because they see you doing them, and they idolize you.

(We don’t have to tell them we don’t like chores. They’ll figure that out on their own … hopefully many many years from now.)

So get to work, toddlers! Er, I mean, have a blast!

The moral of the story? You don’t need imported novelties or expensive museum memberships to entertain a child. Life and learning are endlessly entertaining. Even chores.

If only they could teach us all to see the world that way.
