When with SWMBO #1, Eldest son (then four) wanted to help daddy fix the car, a beetle.
Now I was lying underneath it and not a v. safe place for a four yr old to be, let alone me.
So using insulating tape I colour co-ordinated all my spanners and sockets so it was like "yellow socket", "blue open ended", "green ring".
He loved it, but I actually think he loved the washing hands with Swarfega better as it took him best part of half an hour.
The best bit though was when we went back in the front room, Mom says "where you been Chris?". "I've been helping Dad fix the car......(he then sits down, crosses arms and legs) bloody hard work though, can ya do me a drink ?"
I tell ya I was rolling !!
But aside from that,if you are one of the young ilk on here, with young kids, its not all about jumpers for goalposts etc.. Get them to help you do the house maintenance etc. Its amazing how good a wee un can feel footing a ladder even if it does no good. It's all about I helped Daddy/Mommy.
And the memories will stay with you for ever
