Child Labor

My daughter called to ask if we had any odd jobs that Mia and Miles might do to earn some money. I immediately thought of the fused scraps in a box that I wanted to sort by color. I suggested that Miles might do some sorting of the mess of screws and nails and nuts and bolts in his workshop.

Here is my box of scraps before.

Here is Mia at work.

Here are my scraps in plastic bags. I am so happy to have this done!!

Here is Miles at work sorting.

Mr C went out an bought a storage unit with little drawers. Looks awesome, now. Later, we took them out for sushi. It was a nice day.

Jayme sent me this photo of Paige in her new chair. How cute is she?

    I just did exactly Miles’ job last week! I’m so happy to have all my small parts sorted, but I wish I could have gotten a little spending money for the job. 😉

    Just discovered you and your blog via Judy! Especially love this posting on “child labor” and cuteness personified. Also like your work!

    Are you sure you didn’t get conned into paying someone for the privilege of kid-sitting….Gramma’s are easy targets for this sort of thing!

    Look at little Paige sitting up like a big girl! She is so adorable! Those little chairs are great – Charlie used his a lot when he was ‘little’! LOL

    Can’t wait till I can put Charlie and his little sibling to work for me!

    Love your latest 3 x 3.

    I’m keeping these chore ideas in mind for my grandgirls when they’re a little older. Paige seems to be growing up to fast!

    Whenever you post about Mia and Miles, I get a reality check as to how much time has passed since I first started reading your’s and Stephanie’s blogs. I love Paige’s little chair and those socks!!!Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week.
