This Little Bucket of Mine

My nephews always want to help me (except when it comes to picking up their toys) do "chores" when they come over to my condo. So when Ty-Ty came over last week, he HAD to help me water my flowers.

The problem was that I only had a large watering can that was way too big for him. That's where my pail from Red Hill General Store come in handy.

It was the perfect size (2 quarts) for this almost 3-year-old; however he thought it was a bit heavy so I only filled it about one-third of the way.

"Look, Mimi, I'm carrying a bucket!"

Once we got to the patio, Ty-Ty decided to water the planter next to the door first...

"Hey, it's all gone. MiMi more water!"

Then he moved on to the other planters before moving on to the landscaping around the fence. It was too cute because each time the bucket was empty, he gently set the bucket on the grounds and then turn to me and say "More water, MiMi!"

It took a bit longer than normal but it was worth watching the concentration on his face as he carefully watered each and every plant!
