My little helper
me: Ready to help rake?
Jack: Can I use the big push broom?
me: Okay. Just push all the dirt into a nice pile in the driveway.
Jack: (1 minute later) Can I pick up the sticks instead?
me: Uh sure. Just grab them all and make a pile.
Jack: Look! This one is just like a sword !!! (He runs around stabbing trees)
me: What about the pile?
Jack: I’m gonna ride my scooter and push the broom! (He runs off and gets his scooter and helmet)
me: Why do you have your squirt gun? I thought you were gonna scooter and sweep?
Jack: I’m gonna scooter and squirt you!
me: Sigh. If we work as a team this will get done faster you know.
Jack: We do work as a team. And by team I mean go get me a hot chocolate.
