Life of Pip


Food. Wine. Friends.

He’s a neat freak. For now.

Why is it that kids are obsessed with the chores their parents do? Kids toys quite often include dustpans and brushes, lawn mowers, shopping carts, vacuum cleaners. Before this trip to Spain, Hamish had only shown a mild interest in being tidy. He will put his crayons back in their tub, and he doesn’t mind wiping his own mouth after eating. But that’s pretty much where it ended.

Then all of a sudden, he’s scouring the floor (of the airport terminal, of the ground outside, of the aisles on the plane) for items that he can pick up and toss in the bin. (He can even now say the word ‘bin’.) He also was obsessed with brooms. At Duncan’s parents, he would follow Duncan around with the broom while Duncan was cleaning the pool area. At a party that Susan and Simon’s friends threw, he found their broom and wandered around quite happily with it for most of the time we were there.

Can I hope that his desire to clean stays with him through his teens??

    Unfortunately, by the time he’s big enough to be of any real help, he won’t want to do it anymore. Ce la vie.

    . Your favorite jcaiftsuition appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
