How does my driveway end up so clean? You see, Honey Daddy is a bit obsessive about having a nice, clean driveway. Maybe it has to do with being raised in AZ where the driveways are never icy, or maybe it's just a safety issue. Since I am a beneficiary (and there are far worse things to be obsessed with), I don't really mind the time my Honey spends outside shoveling.
Honey Daddy is even gaining his own little shoveling crew. The boys can't wait for it to snow so they can go outside and shovel. They even have shovels their own size! Earlier this week Honey Daddy refrained from shoveling the skiff of snow before he left for work so the boys could have some "fun".
Ok, so maybe the shovels are a little big for Eli, but he'll grow into them! The shovels are just right for Jonah, who is becoming a great helper when it comes to shoveling.
Eli is especially likely to stop mid shovel and carry his snow off to another location. That makes for some pretty interesting patterns on my driveway....
almost like driveway art!
I know that Honey Daddy would not appreciate the aesthetic value of this kind of driveway art, so I follow after the boys, cleaning up the last bits of snow. That way I will get to spend more time with my Honey when he gets home (because he will not be outside shoveling!).
p.s. Speaking of things my Honey would appreciate, Happy 1/11/11! We like to call it a Binary Day, but if you are feeling less technologically inclined then you can call it Happy Number One Day!
