I usually rake the leaves this time of year and I normally enjoy it. However, while pregnant, raking leaves is really uncomfortable and it plain ol' hurts...
Our lawn was in dire need of some raking attention so I had a little chat with Carson. I explained that it hurts mommy's tummy to rake leaves and it needs to be done so I would like him to be in charge of this project. I also told him that when there is work to be done we don't complain, we just do it. I may have also bribed him with a dollar somewhere in our little heart to heart chat!
Carson was a trooper! He had a blast, so in "Carrie" terms, that means it took FOREVER! That's okay, I was grateful for the help.
Here is a picture Carson took of me, watching him rake. Sam told me that everybody who drove by probably laughed at me but I don't care!
Here are a few shots of Carson in action. He seriously cracks me up!
Happy Halloween tomorrow! Make sure you remind your kids that when they get home from trick-or-treating, moms and dads get to pick 5 items out of their loot to keep for themselves!!!
