Point + Shoot : Weekend Worker

Some people believe children should be seen and not heard.
Hubby and I don't subscribe to that archaic view at all.

We love to hear Magoo around the place.
We love to hear our gorgeous little man 
hammering, sweeping, lifting, carting and working hard to earn his keep around here.

And I thought I trusted Magoo.
That's some serious faith there, Hubby.

Does he think those school fees are going to simply pay themselves?

Of course, if he's compliant and productive enough,
we allow for the odd play with some other employees little friends after knock off.

Obviously, they see his value as an industrious little fellow too.

Do your kids think 'work' is fun?

That's very cute:) My little one does more than the big one, she'll happily wipe down the tables and the kitchen bench using lots of spray but I don't mind if she's happy then I am too. If they think it's fun then that's a bonus it means it isn't as hard to get them to do things, yeah I say:)

Yes!! Absolutely! Right now my Muddy Puzzler is on the tractor with Hubby having a lovely time. They put on their 'work' shirts and love heading out to work with Hubby and I around the farm. Wouldn't be the same without them involved.
How cute is Magoo! Hope he didn't drop any of those tiles!

Haha yes, my four year old loves nothing better then to 'clean' windows and vacuuming the floor!

Gorgeous Shar! He is quite the right hand man your little Magoo.
And yes, the boys most definitely think work is fun. They actually argue over who gets to help put things away or assist Mama in the kitchen. Very sweet xo

Yes, my children used to love work, they find anything animal related fun, but the novelty is wearing off with the pots & pans washing. Love Posie

Ummm, they definitely need to be heard. If not it means they're up to no good. Noise is golden!

My two LOVE the vacuum cleaner. I plug it in, turn it on, make a cup of tea and sit and watch them 'play' while cleaning my floors! Fabulous.
