Who Said It Was Hard to Find Good Help These Days?

Saturday is our cleaning day, and it works best if we all pull together and get it done fast. Well, best for me. Today Peanut Head asked Zoe to get the clothes out of the dryer and start folding them, which she has done before, but then I took it one step further and yelled after her "And get the wet clothes out of the washer and put them in the dryer!"

Peanut Head said "She can't reach them," and I disagreed. He shook his head and continued vacuuming the coffee table, which is, apparently, his way of dusting. Hey, I'm not going to complain. He can do it his way as long as I don't have to do everything.

Anyway, this picture proves that kids can be problem solvers too.


  1. LOL! Peanut Head can come vacuum my dust up any time! As long as he's okay with using the upholstery tool on breakables though. ; )

  2. I'd hire them. Way to pitch in, team!

  3. love this so much!
    laughed when i saw the picture!

  4. Ok just a word of warning from experience... my kid got his head stuck in the washing machine doing that once. Just tipped right in and got stuck.
    Cute photo though.
    Please don't think I'm a poo pooer.

  5. Thanks so much for sharing this - I so needed that little chuckle and pick me up this morning & inspires me to get my kids to help out more around the house too! ;)
    Have a wonderful day!!

  6. Best picture EVER!!!! Love it!

  7. Hahahahaha. I had to read the whole thing to my husband. I don't know which is funnier: the picture of the girls or the thought of your husband vacuuming the table.

  8. Definitely a blackmail picture for when they are teenagers. :)

  9. It was funny before I read it and even funnier after I read it! You have two smart girls!

  10. Jill,

    I love your site!! I love the humor and the practical organizational tools you share. So FUN!

    I have linked you on the sidebar of a new site I'm involved with, I'll definitely be back again!

    Take Care,

  11. hee hee I have my nephew all spring break and my sister was shocked that I made him help with laundry My kids have always helped with chores and if my nephews and neices are around they are expected to tag along and pitch in too its good for them (even my 3 year old)
