Which is more fun? Birthday party or cleaning bottles?

Well, the answer might surprise you. Yesterday my six-year-old son, Henry had to stay home while his brother attended a birthday party. When I asked him whether or not he was interested in helping me clean bottles, I was surprised when he answered with an enthusiastic “Sure!”.

He was tenacious as we soaked bottles and peeled off labels, finally exclaiming “This was a pretty good trade! Ben gets to go to a party, and I get to do bottles with you!”   A proud Dad am I.
