Why "Kid" Help Sucks

Last weekend I decided to buy myself a treat.  A new cart to help with the farm chores, one that I can attach to the tractor inside of pushing the wheelbarrow.  I had a 10% off coupon for TSC and I had been eyeing up this new polyswivel/dump cart that they got in.  So off I went last Sunday to make my big purchase.

Now of course it came in a box so it had to be assembled. No problem, it looked relative easy and the box said it could be assembled in 30 minutes.  However, my "additional help" decided that I really needed their assistance.  First little Emma had to exam the contents of the box.

Then the box became the center of the kids attention and everyone had to get a piece of the box.

Of course the classic head butting was used to claim sole ownership of the box.

Emma lost in the head butting round so she decided my chair looked more her size so she claimed ownership on that.

Gee, I wonder who won ownership of the box??? He is totally pathetic and definitely has his own sense of humor.

I gave up on trying to put the cart together by myself due to the lack of cooperation from the "kids" and had to call in the big guns....Dad. I told Dad after he and I assembled it, that my friend at TSC would have had the guys there assembly it for free.......hehe, thats what he gets for blowing the Amish rocking chair deal at the auction. 
Now of course I will not be using the cart for a few days because I am not hauling anything in 90 plus degree weather, oh my bag, the heat index was only 104 degrees today!!

You had so much help here. I love how the animals like new things as much as we do. Stay cool. Heat wave is bad here too.

To fun, those kids are adorable. Of course Dixie being the most adorable. Did she perhaps inherit her Daddies love of riding in wagons?

What a great new cart-you'll get a lot of use out of that. You could haul feed for the kids. Give the kids a ride. Oh, the list goes on and on........

Good grief--just add tails and ears and those little goaties could be cats! The one with the kid laying on the box is priceless. What a goofball. It's the same way here--EVERYTHING I do here comes all this 'help' running. Whether it's puppies or kitties, it makes the job ten times more time consuming. But you have to laugh..most of the time. Hot here too. Blech.
