I’ve said it before, kids are like dogs. They drool, they roll over, and they’re perfectly trainable to do fun tricks.
When they’re learning to speak, you can try and make them say “firetruck.”
Or you can get them to go and get you things. First, start off small. Have them go and pick up your shoes before you head out the back door. Have them get the remote that is just out of reach on the other end of the couch. Have them open the garage door when you go outside.
Then, once they’ve established the ability to consistently follow directions, you’re ready for the good stuff. Have them go to the fridge in the basement while you’re on the couch upstairs watching the game and get you a beer.
The best part? They are totally eager to do it and pitch in.
Kids are good. They bring you beer.
