Too Much to Do?  Not Enough Time for the Kids? Incorporate Them - Friday's Fotos

 

 

Car Wash Boys

Kids want to make sure they have time with parents regardless of how many other responsbilities we may have.  So, why not make the chores and duties fun and have them help you with them?

I could have taken the car to the car wash, but this was so much more fun for all of us and cheaper too.

Christine, your young ones seem to be having a great time!  They don't mind that you exploit child labor.

Super photo... I love how happy they look. I often include my kids in blogs... they're always available to be my models.

Marchel - I'm hoping we all will cherish them.

Joan - It is, especially since I work so much.

Pat - I didn't mind it at their age either.

Lina - It was a little cool here later in the day and still a lot of fun.

Wandanna - They loved it.

Mel & Gretchen - The kids make great models though sometimes they decide they've had enough of me and my camera.

Sondra - It seemed like a good solution to doing what I wanted (spend time with the kids) and what I needed to do (get car washed).

I try to incorporate my kids in every aspect of my life and business. It not only teaches them about love, but also how to work.

Tony and Darch - They had a great time, something to do with squirting each other I think.

Todd- It really does.  We did a lot with Mom and for her business growing up.
