I said, "Jump." They said, "How high?"

Of course, all this jumping was when they were "supposed" to be getting ready for bed...


This is the genie pose.

**Edited to add for those of you wondering: they are jumping off that chair!!** Still pretty cool, huh?

I wish I could say my "orders" had anything to do with getting my mailbox painted.


But it was strictly a volunteer effort by my hardest worker.

Naturally, dressing for the occasion makes the work seem more serious.

Didn't she do a great job?

The cross-sitting-legs-in-the-air pose is the best!!! :)

Kristine said...

I'm actually amazed at that genie pose...any tricks to getting that picture? I was definitely smiling reading this post today.

Oh man--can she come and paint mine?? Ours is an embarrassment to the neighborhood.

How did you do that genie pose?? photo shop??

Katherine@Raising Five said...

No photo shop. That is an actual jump - perhaps it was that the photographer is 8 years old (one of the few shorter than me in this household??).

The genie pose is amazing! Was she on a trampoline?
What a great little helper you have. I'll holding out that my kids will actually be helpful someday, too! (I'm just kidding - my oldest is only 7 and already a big help.)

AJ said...

That is SOME jumping! Seriously.

Heather said...

I would guess yes on the trampoline. My brother loves to pull that stunt. Great job on the mailbox, I hope you wanted black. :)

Great pictures! And job well done on the mailbox. I love that you have your mailboxes near the street like that. Do you ever pick up the mail in your jammies? Here all the mailboxes are on the houses so I can usually sneak out without anyone noticing me and my bed head...lol.

Awesome job on the mailbox! Can she come and paint mine?

Christine said...

Wow! What initiative! And I love the genie jump.

Those pictures are too funny. Give your hard worker a squeeze from me. She did an excellent job!

My kids' jaws hit the floor when I showed them the genie pose. I hope I didn't give them any ideas...
