Earning her keep

April 21st, 2008

That’s why people used to have kids right? To help around the homestead? We thought it was high time Sabrina do something to earn those expensive gallons of milk she keeps insisting we buy for her.



We had to have a word with her when she tried to take an unauthorized break.


Before you all call Children Services, they are obviously empty. She won’t leave them alone and spends her day moving empty boxes from one place to another.

Another new favorite thing has been discovered during the move:


This little leopard print “purse”. It is actually an umbrella cover but she adores it and carries it everywhere. It is just big enough to fit a couple of legos in it so I tease her it is an evening bag – just big enough for a lipstick and ID.

    Ha ha too cute!
    She’s quite the sassy girl with her Leopard print purse, LOL!

    Hey have a photo contest going if you want to check it out (of course I’m not asking my preggo blog buddy in the midst of moving to do one more thing). But just thought you could if you wanted to :).

    Too cute! Gabbie is into lifting things right now too. We ask her to show us her muscles and she ‘flexes’ her arms and growls. Anyway, she is looking as adorable as ever!

    Too cute!!! Love the purse….my son wants me to have the “over the shoulder Buxton organizer” – I’d much rather have the leopard purse!!

  8. MizFit Says:

    I LOVE what kids will decide to carry around in the name of a purse.

    so funny.

  9. teri Says:

    At least she is pulling her weight around!

    I love her little purse. She is just too cute. It is funny how toddlers love playing with eveything but their toys.

    Have you picked baby names yet?

  10. Martha Says:

    She is adorable – you should enter her in a contest! Isnt that cute the way they want to haul around a bag like their mommas!? Jamie has about 10 already, and has to take one where ever we go.

  11. Kelly Says:

    She is a movie star!

    I was asked two weeks ago whether Johanna’s VISA had that she is authorized to work. I answered that if she is she is getting a job. LOL
    Hope the move is going great!

    Atta girl – muscling it up with the boys by day – steppin’ out on the town with the leopard purse by night. Makes me want to bust out singing “Cause I’m a woooooomaaaaaannn, W. O. M. A. N. I’ll say it again….”

  14. Bobbi Says:

    It is about time she picked up some slack!! What a little cutie. I remember when my girls discovered purses. Have you given her dress up shoes yet?? Oh, she would love them.

  15. Priscilla Says:

    Love! Lucy long ago accepted the fact that children = sherpas. Comes in handy after a trip to the grocery store.

  16. Deanna Says:

    Sure, Child Labor Laws were really only intended for industry not parents. You should be fine, they would have a hard time proving any abuse with that giant cutie pie smile on her face while she’s hauling those “super heavy” boxes around.
    If only we had known about the umbrella holder when we were searching for that perfect evening bag to fit just cash, credit card/id, lipstick, cigs, and lighter, huh?

  17. Emily Says:

    That is hilarious! Great pics!

  18. ani Says:
