LOL, one of the prime suspects. Probably his younger brother, however.

Although he has broken a bedroom window (with a crystal ornament) and a Suburban window (rock), filled the Traeger Smoker twice (Waterhose), and lit the yard on fire in 2014 (electronic start propane torch)

I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Re: Kids At Work


I have no pictures, but my 3 year old helped me assemble a bed for his little friend who's staying with us.

I finger started all the bolts and he finished them off with a hex driver while I moved to the next one. No lie, the little bug did a great job! He kept pace and actually torqued them down tight. I was shocked.

Yeah but she's good at picking up screws and putting them in her mouth for safe keeping.

If that kid is holding the directions, you should probably tell her to throw them away.
