Daddy's Helper

Last week when we got 20 inches of snow, Mike came home from a long day at work, only to be faced with shoveling 2/3 of the driveway. (I managed to shovel 1/3 while Ben was napping.)

Ben felt bad for his dada, so he tried to help.

Unfortunately the shovel was just a little too tall for him, so Mike took control of the shovel while Ben gazed adoringly at him.

While Mike shoveled the driveway...

Ben and I played with some balloons that his buddy Scarlett gave to us after her birthday party.


  1. That first one is so cute. He's so excited to get his hands on that shovel! Mike, on the other hand, looks a bit like an ax murderer.

  2. How cute is that kid. Love the looking up at the balloon while Dad is out working his ass off shoveling. The table will turn only too soon for little Ben I'm afraid and his shoveling days will begin.
