"Helping"

Ahhhh...The Glass Rooster Cannery...such a beautiful, idyllic location for a family get-together.  The weather was just right for playing outside and enjoying the setting.  And the kids really love going there.  But let us be clear about one thing.  They love going to there to "help".

 As mentioned in a previous post, Adam has a wee bit of an obsession when it comes to the children working at a cannery.  We're still not sure why, however recent speculations include the desire for canned lamb to be introduced into the household on a more regular basis.  Of course, now that there is a convenient cannery, he has already filled out the applications for the children and submitted them to the appropriate personnel.  Did I mention it was an obsession?

 Despite Adam's odd fixation, the children have grown to love going to the cannery, but they do insist, that they are only going to "help".  Certainly not "work".  Heaven help you if you say the "w" word to them.

 So the cannery has officially gained two very eager and very tiny helpers.  And one very relieved mother.  Hopefully, now that we have adopted the appropriate terminology, the therapy bills won't be so big due to cannery work-induced anxiety.

We love having their "help"! :)
Although, I did hear Lilla slip once and tell me that she wanted to come back and work sometime. I don't know what that was about, I'm sure she's come to her senses by now. ;)
