First day of real fall weather and first Saturday we've been home in a while. Good day to do some chores. Decided to re-paint the front stoops. Have to scrape and sand them down first.
Here are the hands of a man at work.
Not my hands. The nine year old's.
Typical pose for him, taking over a job from the old man. What can you expect from a kid whose first complete sentence was, "Help you, Daddy?"
He's good at this stuff and he's been at it for a while. Some time I'll have to write about how he helped me re-floor our back deck when he was 6 and a half. Over-protective mothers be warned: the story involves a small child using power tools, including a drill and a circular saw.
Of course, a kid's still got to be a kid and I've been left alone to finish the job myself while he and his brother are off with their mom seeing Batman Begins again at the local discount movie theater.
