A Suitable Job for a Little Lady

Bean, intently watching out the window as a tree crew hacks down a tree near our house bit by bit: "Mom. I want to do it too."

Me: "OK Bean, you can help Daddy when it's time to cut down some tree branches or cut back some bushes. That'll be a great job for you men."

Bella: "Mom, I'll go out and help Daddy and Bean do their dirty work too, OK?"

Me (surprised to hear my forever girly girl volunteering for this task): "OK Bella, that'll be good too."

Bella: "Yeah mom, so... you can get me a pink chainsaw and a cute pink tree worker outfit for my next birthday, right?"

That's more like it.

love it. And that is why we own nothing pink in our home, babydolls are rejected toys, and all things useful have wheels. lol. :)

So cute! Wow, I can't believe that Bean is talking in full sentences - when did he grow up so much?? Wish we lived closer!
