Yesterday, I let the kids pick something out at the Target dollar spot. Because, they didn't get enough toys for Christmas. Or because I am a I giant pushover. You decide.
They picked these little blue & green dustpans and brushes.
Best dollar spot buy EVER. Maggie's efforts were mostly useless, but she entertained herself for a solid 40 minutes. In 2 year-old time, that's an eternity.
Henry ACTUALLY SWEPT UP STUFF. From under the table, no less! I told him I'd pay him a quarter to do it after dinner every night.
That's gotta be at least close to minimum wage for an almost 4 yr old, right? What's the going rate these days?
I figure at a quarter, 4 sweeps and he's back at the dollar spot! Maybe they'll be selling dust cloths. Or dishrags. OR A VACUUM!
