Mowing the Lawn

So I'm heading out to mow the lawn. I've been putting it off, but it's getting so long that I'm afraid I may lose one of my kiddos out there! :) I thought I would check with Henry to see what I might need to have before I go outside.

Let's see: Helmet? Knee pads? Cowboy boots (or cowboy shoes, as my boys say)? I think I've got it. Actually this picture is how Henry usually looks when he's playing in the backyard. He LOVES to wear his bicycle helmet while he's running around. I don't get it. Must be a boy thing! :) And his favorite boots (bright, shiny rubber rain boots) have a hole in them, so he goes for the cowboy shoes instead. In my defense, he does own a brand new pair of sandals!!

Henry "mowed" for me earlier this week, and when he came in he was quite frustrated--I could tell by the scowl on his face. I asked "Henry, what's wrong honey?" and he said, "Mom, I think I need Daddy to fix my mower. I just keep mowing and mowing, and the grass doesn't go down at all!"

that has so much "you might be a redneck" possibility...but since he's a kid i'll leave it alone:-)

Oh how cute!! My kids always like to help around the house too. And, Quintin actually helped me shovel off our entire driveway after one of the lighter snows we had this past winter!

I love your new title!

Is that a Sesame Street helmet? If so, Alex has the same one.

I'm laughing at Heidi's comment because Beth could have written a post about the hicks who live in E. Texas only to find out it's her own relative down the road, haha! It's just way too cute. I feel bad that the rain boots are shot. They were so cute, too.
Don't you just wonder what kind of personality the baby is going to have. Henry is such a hoot.

Question: Does he take after you or his daddy?

I like your new title, too!
