An Eight Year Old Boy and a Jar

If you ask an eight year old boy for help in the kitchen,

expect the unexpected, because life with an eight year old boy in the house is a non stop adventure.

And yes that is what it looks like. Isn’t that how everyone opens a jar?

  1. So, this is what I have to look forward to as my son grows up…haha! :)

    I love this photo!

  3. Awesome…mine just turned 8 a week ago. I guess I should start expecting the unexpected too. HA!

  4. If that were my dad as an 8-year-old, there’d be some black powder there somewhere :)

  5. Ha ha! I am here to tell you it’s not much different if it’s a 4o something year old man and he’s a dairy farmer!

  6. We have a pair of channel locks in the drawer next to the refrigerator for just that purpose! :-) I like your son’s method. 😉 I’ve found that putting a thick rubber band on the lid and then turning usually work just as well though … most of the time. Finally, as the mother of soon to be 23-year old son, I’ll tell you that the adventure is just beginning. 8 is a very good age!


  7. That’s the same tool 2 23 year old “boys” removed a wire from a partially frozen turkey for me once. They don’t outgrow it.

  8. *Giggles* Love it!
