Creative Ways to get Work done from Your Kids


If you have landed in this page by the super-serious topic of the post, am very sorry I don’t have anything useful to offer here.

When you go through consecutive management training, and in-turn loose all your common senses :P , you’ll intend to be a manager every second, and can’t digest the fact that one of your team member is simply running around happily, without any task and responsibility. Yes, am talking about your preschool son & daughter :-O. See, here are some of the funny (yet very productive!) ways, I get my work done through my 3 year old daughter.

When you need to shred some papers:  Just keep the papers nearby and tell her that they are very important papers. Believe me, they will be in million pieces before even you finish.

When you’re searching for a sketch pen/ marker: Wear a white shirt to her and wait for a few minutes. She’ll soon make the plain white shirt to a colorful dress. Yes, the sketch pens are found !!! . It gets great when I do the same trick for finding a permanent marker  X(

When you want to clean-up your wallet, just hand it over to her. It will be super clean in a minute , even the smallest piece of paper scrap will be out and empty. If you’re a mom, this would be very helpful, as your handbag is expected to have much more dump than men’s wallet :))

When you go to a grocery shop, but have forgotten to bring the shopping list:  Just ask her, “What do you want to eat for the dinner ?” . Sure, she will give a list of all the items that you don’t have in the house.

When you want to hang-up a boring phone call which is going for so long:  just go to the room where the kid is. Rest will be taken care of >:)

And these are just a few I could think at this moment.. am sure everyone of you will have a lot more experiences like these. Would you like to share ?

LOL! I am now thinking that managers must be required to get a license before they can produce babies!

He hee..That was real Funnieeee..

I would say that’s hilariously well organised task list , not to mention, as lil home helpers ,especially if they are attention deficit Hypersensitive kids who are over energized ,all these suggested tasks would be highly recommended for sure ;)

If you want to tell a bitter truth to your relative, just make your kid to speak... they will tell all the crap abt 'em without missing even a single word from your yesterday's disucussion with your wife X)

Sakshi said...

Haha. Ya, he will say everything except what you want him to say. This is going to be a pattern in the coming ages

LoL :) One more addition from my experience,..If you miss small pins or coins, they are sure the first one to find them :)

Pon Ganesh said...

@ Julia, true.. later you can find those coins and pins, on their mouth too :)
