Jack Tackled the Sweeping!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

My brain did not kick into gear until a little too late and I could not grab the phone fast enough to get a better shot.

I told Jack that he had to help clean up. I meant pick up his toys that were strewn about the house after a day full of Jack and Daddy fun.

I was sweeping the dining room. Before I had a chance to give him a more specific instruction, he came over, grabbed the broom and said "Sweeping".

His sweeping actually looked a lot more like dancing as he kind of hugged the broom and twirled in a bit of a circle while looking up at it. He "swept" the dining room then moved on to the laundry room.

I don't know if he was going to sweep in there or if he was going to put the broom up since that's where we keep it. Anyway, he got distracted in there and wanted to do laundry.

I need Jack to stop by my house. My kids refuse to learn how to sweep. I think he could teach them a thing or two!

Lianne--I can't guarrantee that he would do it on command. ;)
Melissa--so cute! I hear about kids doing stuff like that all the time. Jack doesn't imitate very many things we do so the sweeping was huge for us.
Mommytoalot--your welcome. Sweeping is fun when Jack's doing it. :)
Rachel--I KNOW. Super cool, right?
