mowing like dad

mowing, originally uploaded by SIMPLY.MADE.

Matthew did a great job 'helping' Erik mow the grass. When he heard it was time for Erik to mow, he offered his assistance- "Mahoo help youu Daddy?"

Erik taught him the basics- you have to wear tennis shoes (no sandals!), and you should fill up your mower's gas tank before you start.

Matthew would have preferred to follow directly behind Erik, to be as much like his daddy as possible, but it was my job to keep him on the opposite side of the yard. He's starting to become a bit of a daddy's boy... this weekend at one point I was taking him to get a diaper change and he wined "NOO! I wan DADDY!"
