NOT child labor

Although this may appear to be child labor,
looks can be deceiving.

This little guy is so fascinated with dog poop and it NOT being on the yard that anytime there is even one pile he is out there with the pooper scooper.

He said there was LOTS of poops out there and he better clean it up. I didn't stop the process.

He got the bag put it in the bucket, took the bucket to the yard, got the pooper scooper and started cleaning.  Let me tell you he is SO thorough when it comes to cleaning that dog poop.

Really it's not child labor. I was just helping him along!

Ten on Tuesday

1. I cancelled my facebook almost two weeks ago. I have never felt free-er. It was one of the weirdest things ever, after I cancelled it I felt like a million pounds had been lifted off me. Wow I didn't realize that Facebook was putting such stress on me. I know that I could just go log back in and it would be like nothing had changed but I am loving the free feeling I have so it will be "good-bye facebook for me forever!

2. We moved. It's been a crazy week but we finally are only keeping one house and it feels so great. We are loving all the space of our new house and that we have a fenced back yard and a really nice park nice down the hill. It's all so great. The boys are in love too!

3. There are barking dogs for our new neighbors....with owners that just couldn't fathom putting a bark collar on any of the THREE of them. So all day long we listening to the barking. It's definitely not a perk of the new place especially when they wake the two year old from his nap. But it's a small sacrifice!

4. Life with a two year old and a 9 month has been so interesting. But it's been so fun...if only I could come up with ideas to keep them both happy at the same time. That's been a trial for sure.

5. I love all the fall decorations that are popping up everywhere. Makes me want to get my craft area up and going so I can make some fun things for this wonderful season.

6. I am already starting to think of the gifts i want to make and give for Christmas this year. Starting with a quilt for my brother that is deployed overseas and said that he freezes at night....thank you air conditioning! So I have my work cut out for me. Now if only I had a Go baby cutter

7. The Undertaker is celebrating a birthday this week....Oh I love celebrating the birthday's of family members ... it's like Christmas all the time.

8. As I was talking to a friend recently she made a comment about paying high taxes in our county. I've been thinking about that alot lately. I've come to the realization that I don't mind paying higher taxes when I can see that things in our community are improving or programs are being offered that we use and love. With that, we LOVE the story time our library offers. Yes we drive to a farther library but that's because I choose to because that's the one we like. But we LOVE the library and the programs it offers. It makes me grateful to live in such a great place...even though the taxes are a little higher. We use a lot of the services those taxes make possible.

9. I am starting to babysit a little girl that is also two. It will be interesting to see how it goes. Luckily the few times she has come over the kids have played well and have gone smoothly.

10. I just love that since moving to this new house the two year old has come into my room NO later than 5:30am telling me that he's awake up from his bed. Well I am not please go back to your room. I just don't know what to do about it. How do I get the boy to stay in his room til at least 7 without just locking the door!
