Girl's gotta earn her keep


Yesterday I took on the brave task of detailing and washing my car. It is not a chore I look forward to, but do find that I enjoy it once I've stopped dreading it and just get going. I do LOVE driving a clean car (no, Dad, that was not a joke) and have ususally done my best at maintaining a clean car (seriously Dad, stop laughing!)


After I cleaned and vacummed the car all out, I went home to wash it myself, as I recently invested in all of the things needed to wash and detail your own car (I already had the armour-all and tire wet OF COURSE, gotta love that shine!).

Laine was VERY excited about getting to help. I got out all of the stuff to wash it, my new brushes and soaps and a bucket and towels. Then something came up and I had to do some work inside. While I as occupied, Laine was making calls on her "cell phone". I heard her call Daddy, she was having this pretend conversation with him telling him all about how Mommy and Laine were going to wash the car together. She was so excited! Even today she still has not stopped talking about it and wants to wash the car again.


Here she is scrubbing, she really puts her back into it



I gave her a 15 minute (unpaid) lunchbreak


Plummer!



She buffed it to a nice sheen, thanks Laine!

Is she taking new clients? My car could sure use a little sprucing!

I am glad to see that a little bit of me rubed off on her while I was in Utah. That is how a real worker works, showing a little CRACK.

Havent looked at the blog all week but loved all the stories and pics. I especially loved the pic of ben in the flips and you in the yellow shoes. It reminded me of when Hayden was here she loved those things and clomped around in them all the time. Thanks for sharing its so fun!

Don't you love it that they still think cleaning is fun? I keep wondering when Ayden is going to realize she is not supposed to want to do it, maybe she never will. That would be great.

love the new look of your site. I'm so impressed at the hard work. You've inspired me, I'm going to clean my car next week, or actually Addison's going to do it.

Love this! Laine, my car is ready for some detailing too! I'll even give you a longer lunch break!

I would also like to comment on the new layout, so cute! How did you do that? Teach me oh wise blogging lady! You do realize that there are child labor laws in place for a reason right? Ok, atleast Laine got a lunch break. So funny.

I am glad to see you upgraded to a new mercedes. I am having flash backs of the creme colored mercedes that Ben bought on eBay (or was thinking about it...I can't remember) when you first got married. LOL.
