Working with Daddy

When Kaden was about 18 months old, Kenny was home with Kaden one day while I was out. Ken really wanted to get the lawn mowed, but he had to figure out someway to do it safely while watching after Kaden - who was VERY mobile and VERY attached to daddy at the time. Kenny's solution was to put Kaden on his shoulders. He mowed the entire lawn with that kid on his shoulders and Kaden LOVED it! I remember Kaden could hardly sit up on Daddy's Shoulders by himself, so Kenny would hunch over makign it easier for Kaden to balance. Well,Daddy had no idea what he started! After that, every time Kenny got out the mower, Kaden wanted on his shoulders! I think it was his absolute favorite thing to do. We couldn't even walk through the garage without Kaden running over to the lawn mower, saying "Daddy mow! Daddy mow!"

So Kaden hs gotten bigger and after a year of adding 30 lbs to his weekly mow, Ken decided it was time to find a better solution. Here's how they mow the lawn now!
