Have You Seen This? How to wash a car with a baby
This is a very important video for all of us with kids, grandkids or those who hope to have kids one day who also own a car. - photo by John Clyde

THE YARD Doing household chores is a part of life and teaching your children how to work hard is a valuable skill. It's important to teach them so they can become contributing adults to society some day. It's also important because they can now do stuff that you don't want to.

Truth be told I tried to talk my wife into not moving to a place where I had to mow the lawn until our kids were old enough to do it. I didn't win that battle, but I'd like to let you know training my 6-year-old daughter on the lawnmower is going swimmingly.

It's that kind of an attitude that leads me to believe I would get along extremely well with the dad in this video.

The man gives us instructions on how to wash a car with a baby. At first I thought he was going to dunk the little girl into the soapy water and use her as a sponge on the vehicle. This worried me because it still means a lot of work for the dad, not to mention all that cleaning of the baby afterward. No thanks. But this guy is a smart fella and actually teaches the girl how to wash the car properly kind of.

Watch the video and enjoy the meaningful instruction. Meanwhile, I've got a 3-year-old that needs to learn how to operate a snowblower.
