The Hardest Working One Year Old

Jude is what you might call busy. And you would say it like that, you would be able to hear the italics in your voice. His days are busy, his evenings are busy, his weekends are busy. He has so much to do he barely has the time to play...

Things Jude must do:

  • Empty the cupboards of all their contents - distribute canned goods throughout the living room
  • Empty the silverware drawer of all it's spoons - all sizes must be accounted for - carry spoons throughout house, leaving them in creative places
  • Remove each diaper wipe from container and use to wipe nose, wipe coffee table, wipe floor
  • Sweep, mop, and vacuum floor - poorly - leave broom, mop and vacuum hose lying around in places mummy can trip

  • Water the carpet using sippy cup as watering can
  • Transport all sand from sandbox into house using a variety of sandbox toys, making sure to leave sandbox toys in the living room
  • Climb up onto kitchen counter and make personal/professional phone calls - hang up with a shriek when mummy asks who's on the phone
  • Ensure baby sister does not fall asleep *very important*

  • Empty clothes from all dresser drawers within reach
  • Empty garbage cans piece by piece
  • Throw self on mummy's back whenever she crouches down to pick something up
  • Smile adorably and offer hugs and kisses randomly

And these are just things he has to do around our house... We were at Nan's on the long weekend, and that was a whole other story... Poor Jude had to wash the car, sweep the driveway, sweep the back patio, fill the watering can with stones.... his list just goes on and on.

At least he's got something to look forward to at the end of the day:
