My 8 year old helps shovel snow. Granted it just with a kids shovel but he likes helping Dad out.

You should have driven over to the BF's house and brought him back to your house...then make him shovel the snow. "You want to see my daughter...then start shoveling."

I would have dragged her lazy arse out of the house yesterday before the first shovel-full was tossed. Hell, I had my 7 year old daughter shoveling 2' of snow off of her giant trampoline last weekend so it didn't get ruined.

That is awesome.

I think she should have helped pitch in. In one sense she is a 19 yr old girl and probably not the best snow shoveler around. However, after at least attempting to help she still could have heated you guys up some coffee or soup or made you lunch at least. I don't blame you for not giving her a ride. I would let her know the next time the driveway needs shoveling is the next opportunity she has for a ride.

I'm lucky. My girls usually love to help. Now the little one was sick yesterday, and the older one didn't help shovel (she let me snow blow after work while she did none of it all day with no school) but she did a bit of housework, as usual. She still got a brief comment from me about maybe it would have been nice to at least shovel around the doors. But she understands reality and expectations and often goes out of her way to help others.

I think you did the right thing. She's 19 FFS! Most kids don't understand what fair really is until they have kids of their own.

Mine's nine. She plays with the dog and shovels the steps while Daddy runs the snowblower. Then she makes tuna sandwiches for lunch when we come in.

I second the motion of bringing the bf over to shovel. Put his ass to work, and he'll be too tired to try and get frisky!

Come on now. At 19 he could shovel all the driveways in the neighborhood and still have the energy to get frisky.

I actually would rather shovel the snow myself. I have a 19 yr old son that would shovel anytime I ask but it is just something I enjoy doing. The same as cutting the grass in the summer. It gets me outdoors and yeah I have all the aches and pains of a 58 yr old. However..... I heard a story the other day from a guy who said his 19 year old daughter was backing her car out of the driveway and got her car stuck. She used her cell phone to call her Mom to come outside and shovel her out. She's in her driveway and calls the house. The daughter actually sat in the car while the Mom shoveled her out....
