Bender is a wonderful "helper."
Today we purchased a new dining set, got a great deal at Target. C and I were building the tabletop and Bender decided he needed to help. "Help" in Bender-speak means walk around, sniff things, and finally sit in my lap - impeding my ability to do anything.
"Hmmm. What is daddy doing?"
"I helping!" (looks like the screwdriver is in his mouth!)
The finished product looks great! We're excited we finally have somewhere to sit and eat together. Bender isn't as excited as his little "man cave" is now gone and his bed is under the new table.
